My name is Emily, and I'm a librarian. Actually, I'm a Reference and Teen Librarian at a public library in Indiana. While librarianship was never my dream job (I wanted to be Indiana Jones), it has been my only job and is now my passion. When I'm not goofing off at my library (how I became a manager I will never understand), I love reading, watching old black and white movies, planning for a zombie apocalypse, and traveling with my well-worn garden gnome Mike.
My travels with Mike the Garden Gnome started in 2004. I was inspired by the beautiful French movie Amelie, not the Travelocity gnome (poser). Reluctant to have my own picture taken out in the world, Mike makes a wonderful stand-in and conversation starter. He has visited the great expanses of the Grand Canyon, the rolling beauty of Tuscany, the sandy beaches of Mexico, and beyond. He has even been kicked out of Graceland. Literally.
If you would like to contact me, I'm available at firstname.lastname@example.org. I promise to make every effort to get back with you as soon as possible.
