Getting to Know Your Librarians – Josie


What should we call you?


Where can we find you?

Why teen services?
There are so many different and fun things to do, plus I like working with teens.

Favorite reference resource (print and/or online)?
Go Ask Alice – It’s entertaining and informative!
I refer teens to Learning Express Library the most, who doesn’t need free test prep?

Favorite book of all time and favorite book right now?
My favorite book of all time is a toss between Roots by Alex Haley or A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry.  However, as a teen, I read The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton 15 times. I used to make little hash marks on the back cover after every read.  Was it a library book you ask?  I will never tell!  My favorite books right now?  The Hunger Games series.

You live in Seattle – To umbrella or not to umbrella?
No umbrella, but yes to cute rain hat.

The best thing about living in Seattle is…
Ferry rides and the Sounder Train. There are so many things to do right outside of Seattle.

We know you love Seattle but where would you most like to live?
Barcelona, Spain.

What is your favorite word?  My favorite word is googolplex, which is a unimaginably huge number. My most hated word is niiiiice. Not as in, have a nice day, but using nice in lieu of cool. Eeewww!


What is your motto?
PLAY HARD, LIVE HARD, DIE HARD…just joking, I don’t believe in mottos.
