Meet Miss Julie
Hello! My name is Julie and I am a Youth Services Librarian.
While I await my letter from Hogwarts, the looking glass to Wonderland and my closet to Narnia, I help children and families nurture their love of reading and learning.
I love reading, playing with my two dogs and watching sports (especially basketball)! I am an avid reader of a variety of books, from picture books to adult books. Some of my favorite authors include Kurt Vonnegut, Steve Sheinkin, Holly Black, Jason Reynolds, Lisa Graff, Rick Riordan and Jan Thomas.
My greatest joy is getting to know our local families and helping them find their next favorite book. I work with library members from birth through the teen years, but the majority of my focus is with elementary school kids. I plan all sorts of youth programming here at the library from educational STEAM activities to fun fandom events with Harry Potter and Mo Willems books. Currently, I run a few Zoom events including Family Storytime on Thursdays, a Monarch nominee book club, STEAM Team To Go and Jackbox Gaming. I also organize the Teen/Tween Book Bag quarterly events.
To view upcoming library events for all ages, including Family Storytime, visit our Events Calendar.
