    "I feel so proud and privileged to share my passion for children’s programming in a library setting. I love meeting new people every day and using library resources to meet their individual needs. One of the best parts of my job is the fact that I can help connect people with an awesome new series or piece of media. I love when customers come back to tell me about their newest OPL loan!"
