We asked Molly a few questions to learn more about who she is what she does.

What are you reading right now?

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells.  I love all science fiction but I especially enjoy older stories.  It's fun to compare the speculations with current reality.

What is your favorite book from your childhood, and why?

The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings series because it's a great story. I've read it at least 5 times and am now reading it to my kids.

What inspired you to work in a library?

I love books.

What is your favorite getaway, near or far?

Camping.

What do you like to do the most when you are not at work?

Spend time with my family hiking, biking, swimming and camping.

What is currently in your iPod/DVD Drive/DVR/Netflix queue?

I'm currently working my way through classic Dr. Who episodes on Netflix.

Be sure to stop Molly and say "hi" when you see her!
