(Editor's Note: the following information was published by the Dracut Library.)

This month we introduce you to Library Assistant, Amy Spence. Amy started working at the library in December of 2015. She couldn't be happier spending her days surrounded by books and readers. She is currently taking online classes at UML.  Amy has a yoga practice that she credits with keeping her healthy and pleasant. She also enjoys taking pictures, hiking, and watching reruns of the West Wing. 

Amy often has a few books going at once, and is currently reading The Gratitude Diaries by Janice Kaplan, The Core of the Sun by Johanna Sinisalo, and just finished Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. Graphic novels are new to her, but she's enjoyed the autobiographies that she's read. Some of her favorite books, however, can be found in the children's room and YA section of the library - they're not just for kids!

Amy and her husband have four children and just celebrated 20 years of marriage.  They frequently turn to the library for books about parenting, personal finances, home repairs, and to research the occasional vacation. All of their children grew up attending programs at the library and borrowing books and movies.  

Amy was the recent recipient of the of the 2017 Ingram Content Award.  As the recipient, she attended all three days of Massachusetts Library Associaton's Annual Conference in Hyannis.  Amy also received a one-year membership to MLA. 

Here at the Parker, you will most often find Amy at the Circulation Desk, where she's happy to check items out to you, or chat about the latest authors and books. Make sure that you stop and say hello when you see her.
