My Librarian Christine

You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world! This room’s the greatest arsenal we could have—arm yourselves!”
—The Doctor, “Tooth and Claw,” Doctor Who

I’m a book grazer, reading a few books at a time and always looking for more. I read everything from young adult fantasy stories to mysteries, funny nonfiction to cookbooks. I love books with a sense of humor and crisp writing. As the Young Adult Librarian, you can find me at the Adult Services desk, setting up teen book displays or running teen events. My eclectic mix of favorite writers includes Jane Austen, Ray Bradbury, Rainbow Rowell, Bill Bryson, Shannon Hale, Ruth Reichl, Ben Aaronovitch, and Molly Harper.
