About Me

KISS (1)Hi! My name is Ari and I’m a public librarian in the SF Bay Area. My true passion is teen services, so you’ll find that teen librarianship and YA literature is the main focus of this blog. I graduated with my BA in creative writing in 2015, and my MLIS in 2016.

My job is awesome because it lets me teach people how to use technology, talk to teens about the newest YA books, make fun displays, lead crafts, and do all sorts of programs–from ordinary book clubs to zombie escape rooms.

If I’m not at the library, I’m probably petting a cat, reading a YA contemporary, watchingย Buffy the Vampire Slayer, scouring the internet for book-print novelty dresses, or hiking.

You can also find me blogging over at Teen Services Underground, where I talk even more about amazing YA books and library programs for teens.
