I am happy to be the District Librarian for West Branch Local Schools.
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education and a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science from Kent State University. I have been a professional Librarian since 1996 and began my time with West Branch in 2005.
My favorite books to read usually are considered young adult literature and I especially enjoy fairytales, folklore, and fantasy ("If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales." ~Albert Einstein). I keep track of the books I read each year, if you are curious, find me on Goodreads. I try to read a variety of materials to have something to recommend for all types of student interests. I am always looking for the next good book and open to suggestions. If you search our catalog and find that we are missing your favorite please see a Librarian or send a message to put in a request. When purchasing new materials requests are my top priority.
