We Need to Talk About Books Bios

Show Hosts

Mary Lovell

Mary is a graduate of Syracuse University with a Master’s in Library and Information Science giving her approximate knowledge of many things. Her job as the Technology Librarian makes her responsible for several awesome things at the library including the website, social media, new technologies, learning and discovery, and the selection of movies, graphic novels and more. She proudly embraces her geeky nerdiness and has an unending love for books, manga, anime, musicals, gaming and Josh Groban.

Jackie Kolb

Jackie is the Community Services Coordinator at Seymour Library. She attended Wells College in Aurora NY, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in English with a Concentration in Creative Writing. Some of her favorite things are polka dot dresses, all of the crafts and a good book!

Leigh Romano

Leigh graduated from the University of Michigan with a Master of Science in Information. She gets to select the adult fiction, create displays and book lists, lead book clubs, and assist with the library website and social media as the Adult Services Librarian. Her lengthy “to read” list includes literary (but not too serious) fiction, mysteries, horror, and anything else with well-developed characters. Leigh is from the Midwest and enjoys hiking, camping, cooking, quilting, and a funky bass line. She spends lots of time walking her dog and, recently, baking bread.

Kathleen Sherman

Past Show Hosts

Caitlyn Green

*Season 1: Episodes 1 – 18

Caitlyn is a graduate from Keuka College, where she got her bachelor’s degree in English. She is an avid horror and manga reader, who reads possibly a bit too much of the latter. When she isn’t at the library, she likes to spend time playing her ukulele and taking leisurely strolls through cemeteries. She is excited to finally be able to share some of her opinions on the books she has read to an audience larger than the Shopkins she keeps on her desk.
