I’m Melissa, the Youth Services Coordinator here at the library which means I’m performing story time for toddlers one minute and the next helping a teen pick out the perfect book for a book report. I get to work with kids, teens, and everyone in between! When not at the library, I can typically be found reading (shocking, I know), baking, or swimming. I love bad puns, especially when they’re appear in children’s stories like anything written by one of my favorite authors Kate Klise.

Request recommendations from Melissa.
