This month we introduce you to our Young Adult Librarian, Catherine Cloutier.
Catherine is the youngest of four children. Her parents worked in the public school system and always valued education. That's why Catherine loves school and spent so many years getting degrees in Psychology, Education, and an MLS in Library Science. She continues to be a life-long learner and takes courses as they interest her.
Catherine's first exposure to a public library was during her formative years, attending story times. She then frequented the library during the summer months as an older child. As an adult, she is always engaging in reading and using the Gale databases offered through the library for research.
Catherine has been a Young Adult Librarian for 16 years. She is currently reading Dumplin': Go Big or Go Home by Julie Murphy. Her favorite Young Adult authors are John Green, Robert Cormier, and Chris Crutcher. Catherine's favorite children's book authors include Marty Kelley and Dr. Seuss.
Outside of the library, you can find Catherine reading, hiking, kayaking, and going to the beach, festivals and craft fairs.
Here in the library, you can find Catherine on the second floor in either the Reference or Young Adult areas on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoons and evenings. Stop by and say hello. She would love to meet you.
