Hi everyone, I’m Denise. Like Michael, I’m new to CLPTeensburgh, but I’ve been working at the library for a while. For the last few years, I’ve been a part of the Job and Career Education Center (JCEC), where you can get help with standardized tests, the college application process, starting a job search, and more. I also occasionally work in the Main library Teen department, and I write for Eleventh Stack, the Main library’s adult services blog.
My hobbies include crocheting, mod-podging stuff to other stuff, and generally being crafty. I love all kinds of music, and will listen to pretty much anything. It helps that I recently discovered the awesome randomness of CoolTV, and Pandora. And of course, I read a lot. I just finished the graphic novel Ghostopolis, and I’m excited to hear that Hugh Jackman’s turning it into a movie. Before that I read The Lying Game, the first book in a new thriller / mystery series by Sara Shepard. And before that I read Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson, in which Tyler, a high school student, struggles with popularity, family pressure, and the consequences of having a bad reputation.
Well, that’s enough about me for now. I have to save something to talk about in my next post. In the meantime, I’m very happy to be a part of this blog, and I look forward to getting to know you all better.
Until next month…!
