What do you do at the Gates Public Library?

I'll be working to enhance and expand library programming for adults while pursuing to further develop community partnerships.

What book has changed your life and how?

"Ten Stupid Things Women Do To Mess Up Their Lives," by Laura C. Schlessinger. I randomly pulled this book off the shelf and 256 pages later I learned to take full responsibility of my life. She keeps it real and I like that.

What book made the biggest impact on you as a child?

"Matilda," by Roald Dahl. I'm the youngest of 4 children and grew up with very strict parents. Her practical jokes and inner resources helped me through many of my own annoyances.

You wake up to find your house is burning down. You only have time to save one object. What is it?

My fiance - he isn't actually an object but everything else can be replaced.

What is your spirit guide animal?

Apparently the owl.

All of the titles under "Staff Recommendations" were selected by Anna.
