Teens - Our Staff
Any of our librarians can help you find things in the Land of YA, but those at the Youth Services desk specialize in youth and young adult literature, but if you see one of the staff below, ask them in particular about teen stuff!
You may recognize Ms. Sarah from booktalks at your middle school, Lincolnway book clubs, and from the Land of YA stacks where she constantly hunts for books and obsessively fixes the shelves. Ms. Sarah runs the Teen Advisory Board (TAB; see the volunteer page!) and all things teen! She loves reading fantasy and science fiction, but she'll read anything. Ms. Sarah purchases the teen books for the library and makes the teen displays for the Land of YA as well. Ask her for reading suggestions and you'll walk out with a pile of books!
Some of her favorite teen books? I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga, The Demon King by Cinda Chima, Cinder by Marisa Meyer, Terrier by Tamora Pierce, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson, Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S. King, the Naruto series by Masahashi Kishimoto, and Chew on This by Eric Schlosser. And just about anything else in the library, too.
Sarah has her masters in library science from University of Illinois and has worked at FPLD since 2009.
Never hesitate to ask for reading suggestions or help with research from one of our librarians! That's why we're here.
