When I took over my job, I did not suspect that I would enjoy running our occasional coffee house called Friday at the Ford as much as I do. I've gotten to hear a lot of great music and meet many wonderful people. We enjoyed Andy Young from Chicago last Friday night, who played mostly Scottish and Irish tunes on hammer dulcimer, tin whistle, Irish flute, and guitar. He'd like to play more libraries.
I am a reference librarian at the Thomas Ford Memorial Library who graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. I have worked in public libraries in Texas, Missouri, and Illinois. I am interested in promoting reference services and the reading of good books.
