My Librarian: Carrie

My Librarian: Carrie

I love to read and talking to others about the books they read. Generally, I will read just about all genres, with the exception of sci-fi/fantasy and anything with extreme violence.  I’m always in the middle of reading at least three books at a time, including an audiobook.  One of my missions as a librarian is to help people find the perfect book. Reading one really good book can end up turning you into a reader for life.  I’ve seen it happen many times and, as a librarian, almost nothing could make me happier.
