Lissa Staley helps people use the library. She is a Book Evangelist, Health Information Librarian, Arts and Crafts Librarian, Trivia Emcee, Classics Made Modern book group leader, and frequent library customer, especially with her preschool children. She reads a new book every few days, but recently loved "Swordspoint" by Ellen Kushner, "Love and Other Perishable Items" by Laura Buzo and "The Reluctant Assassin" by Eoin Colfer and is looking forward to "Homeland" by Cory Doctorow.

Travis is a frequent library user, and he knows that the library is the place to go to learn more about what interests him. Lately, he is interested in dragons! One benefit of using library books with preschool kids is that when they are ready to move on to their next interest, you can return all the dragon books and check out books on knights…or dirigibles…or whatever comes next!
