Youth Services Librarian
Hi! I'm Miss Mo, the new Youth Services Librarian here at Middlesex Public Library. Some of you may know me from when I worked here many moons ago! During my brief break, I completed my Masters in Library Science from Rutgers University and worked as a Teen Services Librarian at Piscataway Public Library for 4 1/2 years. I am very excited to be back in town and look forward to working with, and advocating for the youth in Middlesex!
I LOVE to read, have a big sweet tooth, and enjoy staying active. Stop by the Children's Room and tell me what you've been reading lately!
Hey there! I am so excited to the be the Children's Librarian Assistant. I have spent most of my adult life working with children in one capacity or another. I was a nanny in college, I taught Mommy & Me classes at the Princeton YWCA in my early twenties, was a pre-school teacher, a Sunday school teacher and a stay at home mom.
I love to read and I am a voracious reader. I love the world that books open up for readers; all of the adventures they can go on from the comfort of their own couch! My favorite part of working at the library is helping people to find a book that they will love. My overall goal and joy in working at the library is helping children to find books that just may set them up for a life-long love of reading. I believe there really are books that could change someone from a reluctant reader to someone who can not get enough literature. I have seen it happen with my own children.
I also really enjoy the programs that I run at the library. I love to hear the kids read and read with them. I enjoy doing crafts with the children and seeing their pride in their accomplishments.
Some other things I love: blogging, writing, yoga, photography, cooking, baking, decorating and entertaining.
My favorite books: the Olivia series by Ian Falconer; the Judy Blume books; the Little House on the Prairie series; Max Lucado's children's books; Dr. Wayne Dyer's books for children and adults; the Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty; The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger; anything by James Patterson; Elizabeth Berg, Elin Hilderbrand or Jodi Picoult.
Please stop in and see me in the Children's Room!
