Meet the Librarian

Welcome to the Happy Hollow Library site!! My name is Ms. Flannery, and I am the librarian at Happy Hollow. I love to read children's books, and I can't wait to talk about them with you. My favorite book series of all time is Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, and I also love to read and compare different versions of classic fairy tales. My favorite illustrators are Tasha Tudor, Paul Zelinksy, Jan Brett, Barbara Cooney, and Trina Shart Hyman. My current favorite upper elementary books are Wonder and The Book Scavenger. I have two daughters of my own who both love to read and share books too. So, I'm curious - what's YOUR favorite book? Please stop by to say hello and talk books with me. 

Did you read any amazing books this summer? The librarians from Claypit, Loker, and I created a brand new list of awesome summer reading suggestions that you can find here. I hope you were able to read some of them! 

Remember - read every day!
