Hi! I’m Rachel, and I am excited to be your new Youth Librarian. I have been scouring used book sales and bookstores both near and far most of my life for children’s books because I love reading and children so much. The library is usually the first place I visit wherever I travel. I am the proud mother of four boys ages 11 to 23 that I homeschooled for 17 years.
When I was in the first grade, my dad bought me my own copy of Nancy Drew’s The Secret of the Old Clock along with a red pocket dictionary. I would underline the words I didn’t know with pencil, and look them up in my dictionary. That is where my love of mysteries began!
At age 8, my family moved to Tanzania, East Africa for a year, where I was introduced to 2 new series: Mr. Men and Tintin. I loved to curl up in the window seat and escape to all the exciting places Tintin journeyed to around the world. I also discovered The Black Stallion series and was thrilled to follow Alec Ramsey and his Arabian horse on their racing adventures. My love of travel probably began with the places I read about.
When I was in middle school in Colorado, one of my favorite things to do was to walk down the road to the small library. That is where I discovered The Secret Garden, which became my favorite book in sixth grade. During those years I fell in love with Jo and Laurie from Little Women and reread that book every year until I went to college.
I graduated from high school in Montana, so I am not a native Texan, but I am married to one! My husband, Clyde, and I have been married 30 years this summer. I love the great outdoors and would rather be hiking a mountain or walking along a beach than anywhere else. Some of my favorite hobbies include walking, reading, writing, cooking, knitting, and hand stitching. Drinking hot tea and reading a good book is a good way to spend part of any day. I can’t wait to introduce you to some of my favorite books and authors. Stop by and introduce yourself anytime!
