Interview By: Anthony Prince
What are you passionate about?
I love telling the story of how I became a librarian. Like so many things in life, it didn't happen all at once, but in scattered moments. To begin with, I loved books (not a good reason to become a librarian). My mother would walk with me to our local branch library and I exulted in the treasure trove of picture books. I couldn't get my own library card until I could sign my own name - how tantalizing that was! The best part was the friendly librarian who even gave me a cookie once. Chocolate chip! And that was the first moment in becoming a librarian (cookies are a good reason for anything).
