As compensation, Teens receive 1 hour of community service hours, and a free taco the first Tuesday of the month.

Teen Librarian

I’m Allison and I am the Head of Teen Services! I studied English and Spanish at Salem State, then moved to Spain and worked as an English teacher for three years, and am now pursuing my Masters in Library Science at San Jose State University. I love to travel and be near, in, or on the water. I’m also a huge animal lover and have a dog, two cats,  a tortoise, and two gerbils. My favorite genre is fantasy, so let me know if you’re looking for recommendations!
