Barbara Bailey

Painesville, Ohio

I am a fun-loving, crafty, working mom and grad student pursuing my MLIS at Kent State University. Currently I am a Children's Services Assistant at a small library in Northeast Ohio and my ultimate career goal is to be a Children's Librarian. I have only just started my master's program, so I am looking forward to all that I have to learn along the way! I have two amazing children who are the loves of my life, Aiden is 7 and Ava is 6, and they keep me incredibly busy!

Interests & Hobbies:
* Going on beach glass hikes with my kids and husband
* Making crafts out of beach glass
* Reading YA fiction
* Dexter (we just started watching it on Netflix and it is awesome!)
* Doing the bulletin boards in the Story Room at my library
* Brainstorming fun, new Children's Programming
* My yorkiepoo, Chewbacca
* Cooking--I love trying new recipes!

Here is a link to my web page, Miss Barbara at the Library, where I post my story times and school-age programming. I try to update weekly, so please check it out and I welcome feedback!
