Some things you might like to know about me:
I live in Catonsville, and I love running into my CES friends at the public library, the Giant, or Atwater’s.
My husband and I have two grown sons who are taller than I am!
I take our library guinea pig, Oreo, home over long, vacations, but not over the weekend.
I walk to work most days (yes, even when the weather is nasty).
I have a small trading library in my front yard, take a book, leave a book.
