Being a librarian comes naturally to Laura. Her experience runs the gamut from manning the reference desk in an academic library to working with public libraries on both opening day collections and day-to-day ordering. She is driven by the intense desire to serve patrons’ diverse needs and looks forward to helping libraries do that each and every day. She understands the challenges of trying to balance a collection between patron-driven selections as well as the staples that people have come to expect from their public library. Her additional cataloging knowledge gives her a unique insight into what it takes to get a book from selection to shelf.
When she’s not reading YA fiction and graphic novels professionally, she likes to read them for fun. She’s also fanatical about listening to, watching, or reading anything Beatles-related.
