What three people (dead or alive) would you invite to a dinner party? My sister. I don't need two other people -- she's the only company I would need to complete the perfect dinner party.
Favorite Quote: "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul. And sings the song without the words and never stops at all." - Emily Dickinson
Job at the Library: Public Services Manager. I oversee the phenomenal teams that implement our programs and mobile services for the library. It's a wonderful, fulfilling job.
