Mieko L.

Job Title: Librarian, Adult and Teen Services 

Favorite Genres: Genre benders, mysteries/thrillers, historical romance, books with dual timelines and deeply-buried secrets, audiobooks, superhero movies, science fiction tv shows, musicals.

What I'm into right now: One of the best parts of my job is being able to interact with fellow bibliophiles. People come to staff all the time for recommendations, but I absolutely love hearing what books you’ve read and enjoyed! Since I started working here, I’ve gathered quite a list of titles I’ve heard about this way and want to read - I don’t know if I’ll ever make it through them all! Even more striking is the diversity of titles. Each title on this list is so different from one another and really speaks to the wide range of readers in Downers Grove.
