Hi, my name is Jessa and I am a certified, bona fide librarian. At the moment I'm doing part time work in academic reference and as a substitute librarian for a public library.

I have a hard time deciding what I love most about libraries and will probably find something new to enjoy every day. I certainly find a new book to read every day. I live in one of Pittsburgh's 90 neighborhoods with my husband Ian and our cat.

I have a BA in English literature and Philosophy from Eastern University, and I recently graduated from University of Pittsburgh with my
MLIS. (Please note that all opinions and reviews are my own--as well as some of the photos.)
