Ever faked reading a book?
I prefer not to comment. But when I was little I hated to read. It wasn’t until I started working at a library that I started reading everything I could.

Favorite thing about working for Kansas Talking Books?
We get so many notes form patrons who didn’t think there was any hope. It’s nice to know that we give people something to do to improve their lives, that we gave them something positive. I really like working here, it is fun.

What is your best library memory?
I loved working in a children’s library and being around the kids. They were so cute.
