The library is open, and full of students studying, creating origami and Lego sculptures and (gasp) eating and drinking! The library seemed too quiet over the summer without all of our students, and we’re so glad to have you all back. We know that you spent the summer doing exciting things, but you might be wondering…how do librarians spend the summer?
Favorite Thing You Did This Summer: Went paddleboarding with my family! It was really fun. I also spent a lot of time at the beach.

Most Excited About This School Year: I’m excited to get to know more of the Upper School students through the Maker Break activities and the library overnight.
Favorite Thing You Did This Summer: Went to the Rose Bowl to see the Mexico vs. Panama soccer game!

Favorite Thing You Did This Summer: Went to Chicago for a library conference! I got to meet Tamora Pierce, who’s one of my favorite authors. I also finally went to the Getty for the first time.
Favorite Summer Book: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. One of the best books I’ve ever read, and now I’m reading my way through all of Neil Gaiman’s books.
