Staff Profiles: Meet Ann

8/11/2013
Meet the staff behind our social media posts. Ann is both a member of the Facebook team and tweets as @saclib_central.
 
In real life you can find her working as a librarian at the Central Library.

Q. Why did you become a librarian?
My dad suggested it when I graduated, unemployable, after four years of eclectic classes and a German Language major. It turned out to be a perfect choice, because now I need never stop learning!
 
Q. Who is your favorite author?
I’m fickle. My current favorite isn’t an author, but a narrator. I just finished listening to Whale Rider, by Whiti Ihimaera and read by Jay Laga’aia.  Jay’s interpretation was so uncannily realistic, I feel like the story’s characters are real people I know!
 
Do you have any pets?
I have a Black Widow tetra which swims alone in a 10 gallon aquarium. He (she?) follows the big red cap of the fish food when I move it along the sides of the tank. He’s already lived almost twice as long as the pet store’s life-span estimate of 4 years.
