Residence Hall Librarian

"My favorite book-related childhood memory is spending hours in a walk-in closet reading my favorite series, including the Little House on the Prairie books and various mystery series for kids."

"The book that I remember reading in High School that we talked about in depth was Tom Sawyer. It was very interesting coming from an all-white community and school. I like to read Mystery and Romance books. Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors whether it is mystery or romance. I want to read more John Green Books. My mom took me, my sister and brother to story time every Tuesday and Saturday at the Monticello Library. They have great children’s programs."

"Growing up, my favorite books revolved around animals – specifically dogs – and The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley (which made sense because it combined suspense AND Clue, their dog). In fourth grade, my teacher would read to us every day after lunch and one of the books, Where the Red Fern Grows, stuck with me because it was one of the first books to make me cry. A couple of years later, I would walk into Border’s and blow my entire summer savings on books like Where the Red Fern Grows, Lassie Come Home, and Shiloh. I would always sign up for the summer reading programs my library offered which allowed me to justify voraciously reading any dog-themed book."

"I loved a lot of books growing up and still do! My fondest memories are my mom reading me the Little House on the Prairie series and Beverly Cleary books. On my own I loved reading Ella Enchanted, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and the Harry Potter series. Some of my more recent favorites are The Fault in Our Stars, A Mango-Shaped Space, and anything by Scott Westerfeld."

"My favorite childhood library memory is how I discovered my love of books through my local library. When I was little, I was an aspiring artist and my local library had a program where you could earn free erasers by reading a book. Back then, erasers were incredible prizes, especially since they were dinosaur-shaped pencil toppers. So I earned myself a mountain of erasers. Through the program, I discovered that I loved the books more than the erasers and my addiction to reading began. Two decades later, with a Bachelor's degree in English and Creative Writing and a massive library of my own at home, the addiction still hasn't stopped."
