Childhood ambition: concert pianist or car mechanic (working with my hands)

First job: doctor’s office cleaning lady

Proudest moment: When Jefferson Market teens hosted the first ever video game program at Astor Hall in the 42nd Street library and Carlos was quoted by the NYTimes.

Biggest challenge: Having to convince other librarians of the importance of services and materials for teens

Inspiration: the teens, of course!

Currently reading: The Clash of Kings, book 2 in The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin

Most surprising thing about being a librarian: How library work reaches so much further than the library

I love being a librarian because: I help people and I make a difference in people’s lives
