South Park High School
Library Media Center
Mrs. Finberg - School Librarian
I have been the school librarian since 2007. I was a full-time English teacher for the past two years while our Library Media Center was closed. I am excited to be back in the LMC this year! I am also teaching two English classes (English 9 and English 12 CP). While some things are the same (lots of books!), there are also exciting changes. You can read more about what is new in our BTS (back to school) newsletter HERE.
I graduated from Seton Hill University in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in Secondary English Education. I have worked in libraries since I was 15 years old when I started as a page at Mt. Lebanon Public Library. My mentor librarian at the Pittsburgh Culinary Institute Library inspired me to fulfill my dream of being a certified school librarian. I obtained my Master in Library and Information Science degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2007. I was offered the job at South Park High School, and I never looked back.
I moved to South Park Township in 2016 with my husband and our band of misfit animals. We currently have three dogs (Eddie, Prince, and Willow), four cats (Riff-Raff, Mouse, Boris, and Mira), and three freshwater fishtanks. I also foster cats for a local rescue. I love to walk our dogs at the Montour Trail and sit in our sunroom with our cats.
My favorite genres to read are fantasy and horror. It's even better if they are both in the same book. Some of my favorite authors are Leah Bardugo, Kit Frick, V.E. Schwab, and Jason Reynolds. I also like to read biographies about strong women from history.

What I'm Reading
Pippa is a typical high school student who just happens to be re-investigating a five year old disappearance and muder of a local student. She is convinced the suspected murder is actually innocent. Proving it will involve spying, lying, and getting close to all the wrong people.
