I am a librarian at Northwest Library. I love to read mysteries and funny stories, but my all-time favorites are graphic novels. Outside of the library, I like playing board games, watching the newest movies and spending time with my silly shiba inu, Kitsune. My other favorite pastime is FOOD, from eating different cuisines to trying out new baking or cooking recipes.
