Job Title: Adult & Teen Services Librarian

Favorite Genres: Historical Fiction, Teen Fiction, Fantasy, Memoirs/Biographies, Popular Fiction, Humor, Sports, Nonfiction History

What I'm into right now: From the intensity of battle during a war to the everyday lives of people, historical fiction sweeps readers away and plants them in the middle of another time.  My love for this genre started as a kid, as I devoured Little House of the Prairie, the Dear America books, and anything by Ann Rinaldi.  Now as an adult, it’s still my go-to genre to escape and learn a little at the same time!
