Meet Miss 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.
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 books.
What I want to ask you: I’m new, so stop by and say hello, suggest a book, suggest a program, or just tell me a little about yourself. I can’t wait to meet the teens of La Grange!
