I'm a paraprofessional jack of all trades in a small library. Small Library is part of a Regional Consortium. I am the YA librarian, tech librarian (computers, not cataloging--though I do my share of copy cataloging), general computer go-to person, circ & ref desk staffer, and assistant to the director.

When not wielding the almighty shushing finger, I like to cook & bake, write, read (what librarian doesn't?), hike, run, garden and game (primarily board and card games, though a friend is introducing me to tabletop gaming).

Primarily cooking vegetarian and vegan, I also like to can, pickle & dry (dehydrate) and am hoping to expand my repertoire of food preservation to fermentation.

Science fiction and fantasy are my go-to genres, but I do love a good cookbook and entertaining food writing. MFK Fisher is my hero. I totally count comics, graphic novels & the like as reading. Audiobooks count, too. If you know of any food-based comics, share them! I devour them and am always hungry for more. (French Milk by Lucy Knisley, anyone?)

Current board game obsession: Carcassone Current paper book: The food of a younger land : a portrait of American food : before the national highway system, before chain restaurants, and before frozen food, when the nation's food was seasonal, regional, and traditional : from the lost WPA files edited and illustrated by Mark Kurlansky. Current graphic novel: Promethea by Alan Moore Current audiobook: Dodger by Terry Pratchett
