My Librarian: Anna
I really do believe I have the best job in the library! Everyday I unpack boxes of brand new books that have been purchased for the collection and I get to see them first and then I get to see every book again when I make sure it gets into the catalog to be found by the public. Needless to say my Goodreads "Want to Read" list is a mile log. Even if I wasn't interested in something before, if the right book comes in, I am right down the rabbit hole with it.
I don't have any sort of attention span when it comes to my interests. I have picked up a plethora of arts & crafts books--looking mostly at knitting and paper crafts with a bit of sewing. I am pretty sure I checked out every bread book in my quest for the perfect pizza dough. I requested every book I could when we brought home our rescued Great Dane. I read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and then I had to get books on raising backyard chickens and tending a garden. Most recently I was checking out books on tiny homes when my family gutted a '99 Bluebird Bus and turned it into a skoolie. I also took advantage of our collections items and checked out a ukulele and then I had to grab all the books I could to learn how to play my brand new ukes (having just one wasn't enough).
When I am not pursuing a passing interest, I enjoy reading or listening to books that are very much in the Rom-Com genre. The past few years have been hard, and just like watching a movie, a good book feels like a big bowl of ice cream or a mug of hot chocolate.
