Head of Teen Services

I’m Joanna and I am the head of teen services! I studied Fiber Art at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and am currently pursuing my masters in Children’s Literature and Library Science at Simmons University. I love working in the teen department because I get to combine my love of books and teaching art. I love crocheting and weaving while listening to audio books, swing dancing, roller derby, and singing show tunes, and playing my ukulele.  My favorite genres  in YA include any dystopian, mystery, or LGBTQ romance novels if you need suggestions!



Teen Assistant

“I’m Amy and I’m a Library Assistant in the Teen and Children’s departments! I went to art school and studied Illustration. I’m the person who draws all the cartoon characters you can find behind the fiction books. I also manage the Graphic Novel and Manga collections in the Teen Room. I love animals, making art, reading comics and watching cartoons. Come find me if you want a graphic novel recommendation, would like to request a manga series for the library, or want to ask me to draw something on the chalkboard wall!
