About me:

I have been an elementary and middle school librarian for 38 years.  I have worked at schools in Wichita, Chanute, Scott City, and Hutchinson.  The last 6 years, I have been the Middle School Librarian at Prairie Hills Middle School in Hutchinson.  My husband and I retired at the end of the 2011-12 school year and opened the Bookends bookstore at 123 North Main.



I enjoy doing a lot of things: reading, using technology, knitting, watching TV, playing online games, playing with my grandkids.  I'm always on my computer, iphone, ipad, Kindle, etc. We love to travel.  Our last trip was the summer of 2011.  We went to England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. My favorite music is classical.


Favorite quotes:

"A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them." ~Lemony Snicket
