Understatement of the Year: I LOVE STORYTIME!!!!! Truth be told, I love everything about being Children’s Librarian: interacting with kids of all ages, collaborating with wonderful colleagues, reading kids books, singing goofy songs… I could go on for hours. I feel lucky everyday when I arrive at work, and feel a little sad when the day is over. But if I had to pick a favorite thing about my job, storytime (esp. preschool age) wins by a landslide. I should also mention that I am a pretty energetic, excitable person, most would (and often do) say hyper or spazzy. Storytime gives me a chance to put some of this energy to good use.
I am a Youth Services Librarian at Niles Public Library District in Niles, IL. Niles is a medium-sized (approx 75,000) suburb located just northwest of Chicago. It is a wonderful town, that and supports the library very generously, and uses it very enthusiastically. I live in Chicago with my husband and our 2 dogs.
