Welcome to the first in a series of short articles about the Library’s staff.
First up: Ann (whose face is familiar to anyone who uses the Children’s Room at the Central Library) tells you all about her job – and a few other things too!
I love my job! I love being with the kids. I’ve worked in a few different departments here at the Library, but this is the most rewarding. It’s hard work, but sometimes we’re having so much fun it feels like play. I tell stories, do programs, and when I do a storytime and watch someone fall in love with the same book that I love – my heart just melts. There’s nothing like it!
I also love reading children’s books and recommending them to kids who I know will enjoy them – it’s fun matching kids we know with books they’ll like.
Other things I enjoy are vacationing at the beach, shopping, foreign films, and puzzles. I’ve been dancing ballet since the age of three and I still enjoy going to dance classes twice a week.
Stop by the Children’s Room to say hi anytime!
