robin.jpgHi, my name is Robin and I am the newest face in the Children’s Department at the Main Library.  I have been working here just over two months.  I worked in an elementary school library before and taught preschool for many years so this job includes all the things I enjoy:  books and working with children.  I have always loved reading and books since I can remember and always have a book I am reading. 

I have 3 sons, all grown and on their own now, and I loved to read to and with them as they were growing up.  We read together every day.  We enjoyed books together so much they even named some of their pets after book characters.  We had a dog named Ribsy just like in the Beverly Cleary books and a rat named Templeton like in Charlotte’s Web.  We traveled through history and on many adventures through the Little House books, the Narnia series, and many more. 

I still love reading and it is my favorite pastime outside the library.  I also love being outside, quilting and embroidery.  The most exciting thing now is that my oldest son and his wife are expecting our first grandchild this fall and we are anxiously waiting for her to be born.  Can you guess what I am buying for her?  If you guessed books you are right.  She already has a library of her own and she won’t be born until October.  Come by the desk and share with me your favorite book so I might include it in my granddaughter's library.
