Favorite Book: The Empty Pot by Demi

Favorite Movie: Me Before You & Hidden Figures

About me: Hi, I’m the Technical Services and Development Department. I have been working here at the library since 2003. Probably many of you recognize me but for those who don’t, you usually won’t see me at the circulation desk because I am in a different area cataloging the new items. I like to read English and Spanish books, I usually read nonfiction, but lately I have been reading fiction and children’s books.  One of my favorite children’s books of all time because of the beautiful message is, “The empty pot” by Demi. Two of my favorite phrases that I tell myself every time: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever” -Mahatma Gandhi and “If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.” -Napoleon Hill If you have questions about how to donate to the library I will be glad to help, just contact me.
