You know them. You get them too, the top “Get to know you” questions….
1. Where ya from?
Lewistown. And, frankly we have a long history, Lewistown and me. I was born and raised in this beautiful community. Left for a few years, lived in Bozeman, on Flathead Lake, and Great Falls, but somehow I always find my way back to the heart of Central Montana.
2. What do ya do?
I have the best job ever! I am the Youth Services Librarian. Therefore, I spend my days in the fantastical world of youth literatures…I have a certain proclivity for the adventure found in young adult novels, especially of the fantasy/sci-fi persuasion. I love stories! And if I have one goal as the Youth Librarian, it is to infuse the lives of our young patrons with love of story so they may learn the power of imagination.
3. Oh you’re a librarian, “What’s your favorite book?” (Okay maybe you don’t get this question so often but it’s a popular one in this neck of the woods)…
Favorite book?!?! To quote Drew Barrymore in the movie Ever After, “I could no sooner choose a favorite star in the heavens.” But honestly, to choose just one book, one story to be my favorite that is difficult. I often go with the Harry Potter series as it was the first book/s that I loved, couldn’t put down kind of loved. Before Harry Potter, reading, to me was a chore, a challenge, and took far too much time. But after Harry Potter, I just wanted to find that next great story.
4. What do you do in your spare time?
Bahahaha, spare time! Nels, my ever-moving son, keeps me rocking and rolling. Most days, when I am not at work, I am running from here to there with this rambunctious toddler. But when I do have a chance for some Dani time, I enjoy any outdoor activity, hiking and cross-country skiing being some of my favorites.
