Teen Services Librarian
Stratford Public Library
Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
Brooke has been working with teens for over 12 years now. She simply can't get enough of the challenge that each different year and each different group brings. Despite having two graduate degrees (M.S. in Instruction and Curriculum with a specialization in School Library Media and M.I. in Library and Information Sciences), she is still a kid at heart -- plenty of geektastic passions (cosplay FTW), Disney World lover, and Netflix binge watcher.
Currently, she serves a wide variety of teens from a range of backgrounds at a public library-secondary school shared facility in southern Ontario. She also totally digs her work as the co-chair of the Ontario Library Association's Child and Youth Expo Committee and as a member of YALSA's Education Advisory Committee.
