Dawn V.

I grew up in the country with few neighbors, two older siblings whom I annoyed,  and four channels on the TV, so reading became a favorite pastime early in life to entertain myself when it was too crummy or dark to be outside. I have worked at KHCPL for more than half my life (I’m not THAT old!) and thoroughly enjoy selecting fiction and nonfiction materials for the adult collection. Personally, I love a good story or mystery with quirky characters, anything by David Baldacci or Michael Connelly, biographies, and historical nonfiction, particularly Civil War or WWIIeras. You can find me in the Annex reading tons of book reviews or creating weeding lists, but occasionally, I put on my old Reference hat and fill in at the desk in the Adult & Teen Department (Main) or at the South Branch.

 

I also love watching football at every level, especially college (Go Irish!) and my favorite family vacations are spent lounging on the beach in Florida…with a good book, of course!
