I have been working for Derbyshire Libraries since 2010, first as a Library Assistant at Bolsover Library, then Assistant in Charge at Bakewell Library, and have always loved encouraging children to read. I am currently a Children's/Community Learning & Information Librarian, and have recently finished a three-year secondment helping people with all manner of digital issues through lbiraries. I joined the YLG East Midlands committee in 2015, and am always looking to volunteer for any other opportunities that might further my knowledge of the library world.

During 2017 my family read 1,000 picture books to raise awareness of reading, which was fantastic fun. In my spare time I love spending time with my family, aspire to be an author of picture books through to adult novels, make amateur films with friends, compose and records music, love acting on stage, blog, play computer games, practice Kyokushin Karate, and never sleep so I can accomplish all of this.
