Meet the Staff: Kayla S.

Posted by Kayla S.

How long have you worked at the library?  Since July 2013

How my items do you have checked out now? on hold?  I'm at a low!  I only have three with two on hold.  I guess I'm trying to pace myself - it's too easy to check out more than I have time to read!

What book (or books) can you read again and again without losing interest?  I am an addict to dystopians, particularly Farenheit 451. I love the messages of hope through tremendous struggle, the story of Montag's romance with literature, and the wild imagery Ray Bradrary poured into that.

What aspects of the library do you think are under-utilzed?  I believe the children's/youth programs are a little bit under utilized.  There are so many great programs and opportunities at hand in teh children's library!  also, the adult non-fiction, expecially the gardening adn cooking sections - there are so many gems in those sections!

What is your favorite book format?  I love books, but I haven't really given audiobooks a shot yet ... something to try!

What is your favorite aspect of working at the library?  The staff and regular patrons are just too great.  I adore my fellow employees and it never gets old being able to exchange recommendations with regular patrons.

What books do you feel guilty for not having read?  As cliche as it may be, I feel guilty for not having read more classics.  I've read a handful, but yet there are so many I still wish to read.

What is your perfect reading environment?  As a teenager a rainy quiet afternoon or a bubble bath was my ideal reading environment, but notw, any free time I have to turn a page is perfect enough.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what single genre of books would you want with you?  While I'm addicted to cookbooks, I don't think these would be much good on a desert island...  I probably would want science fiction novels.  Dystopians always catch my interest!

What was you favorite children's book when you were a child?  What is your favorite children's book now?  I loved Shel Silverstein poems as a kid, but now my favorite books have to be by Mo Willems.  Elephant and Piggie books are just too funny!

Before you worked here, what was your worst library transgression?  I would always come in without a card and hold up the line to check out on Sundays - let's not include  this in one in the blog... ha ha ha.
