Is there one library resource that you recommend more than others?


Which celebrity favors you?

I think Tina Fey and I may be the same person.

If you invented a monster what would it look like and what would it be called?

It would be a Plague Doctor. They were SO scary looking. The costume consisted of an ankle length overcoat and a bird-like beak mask often filled with sweet or strong smelling substances (commonly lavender), along with gloves, boots, a brim hat and an outer over-clothing garment.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and Dr. Seuss’s ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!

Is there anything else we should know about you?

I am a diehard fan of two of the worst professional sports teams: The Cleveland Indians and The Cleveland Browns

I read trashy romance novels in my spare (and not so spare) time. I think too much at work, I don’t want to do it at home.
