Erin has been a Children’s Librarian at the Whitney Library for almost a year and a half, and she can’t imagine having any other job. Her absolute favorite thing about being a Children’s Librarian is doing storytime and making people smile. Erin wants you to know that the Whitney Library has storytimes available seven days a week, and that ALL of our programs are free! There are programs for all ages, even teens. Coming to the library for a storytime or craft program is a great way to spend time together as a family and help children develop a love of books of reading.
Erin also wants to remind everyone that our Summer Reading Program ends Tuesday, July 31 and we have TWO programs to celebrate. On Friday, July 27, Teens in grades 6 – 12 who participated in our Teen Summer Reading Program, Own the Night, are invited to attend our Teen Vampire Sock Puppet Pizza Party! We will enjoy pizza and make super scary vampire sock puppets. On Tuesday, July 31, don’t miss our End of Summer Reading Craft Buffet for ages 0 – 11 at 2 p.m. The Balloon Wizard will be on hand to make amazing creations for you!
Erin’s favorite book is Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems. She hopes that someday, when the pigeon is old enough to drive and has graduated from bus-driving school, he will be allowed to drive the bus if he still wants to. She also identifies strongly with Fancy Nancy by Jane O’Connor.
In her spare time, Erin enjoys reading, watching movies, making up songs, and hanging out with her dogs Seamus and Sydney. Make sure to stop by the Children’s Services Desk and say hello to Erin the next time you visit the Whitney Library. Erin and the rest of us thank you for using the Whitney Library, and we hope to see you soon!
