Meet Nicole, Teen Services Librarian

What I do at the Library?

I am in charge of ordering teen books, movies, and music, planning teen programs, and visiting teen classes.

What I like to do outside the library?

I live in La Grange with my boyfriend, where we enjoy activities like biking, reading, gaming, going to the movies, or just hanging out downtown with friends.

What books do I like?

Books that are character-driven, thought provoking, and fast paced (no twenty page descriptions of meals and/or clothing, please). This is why I mostly read Young Adult Literature.

What I want to ask you?

Please stop by and say hello, suggest a book, suggest a program, or just tell me a little about yourself.
