Your Librarians Now...
Q: What was your favorite book series, author, or stand-alone novel in middle school?
LD: The Giver, by Lois Lowry
SW: Stephen King
Q: What was your earliest memory of being in a library, school or public?
LD: It was a preschool field trip to the Boise Public Library. I still remember the smell of the library and the red velvet carpet.
SW: Going to Cascade Public Library with my mom and sisters. We got to check out puzzles and books. The librarian was always nice and gave us stickers.
Q: Why is reading meaninful to you?
LD: It has turned me into a life longer learner and seeker of knowledge. Reading helps me to be more empathatic and experience what it is like to walk a day in some one else's shoes.
SW: Reading has always helped me relax and feel happy. I love reading all kinds of stories (fiction and nonfiction) and learning about people and events. Reading connects me to new people, ideas, and experiences.
Q: What are some things that you love about working in the library?
LD: Everyday is different! I enjoy making connections with students through books and recommendations. I love discovering new books and hidden gems.

SW: I enjoy getting to know the students and finding out what they enjoy reading. It makes my heart happy when a student tells me how much they loved a book that I recommended to them. I also love the challenge of finding the "right" book for a finicky reader.
