My Librarian: Mary Buck
Born before I was even a year old, I love playing tower defense games, trying new recipes, learning about life’s odd mysteries, people-watching, shelving self-improvement books, and laughing. I earned my BA at the University of Buffalo and my MLS at the University of Pittsburgh and traveled a lot before I settled in Fredericksburg to raise a family. I love to read. I like all formats—book books, audiobooks, and eBooks. I read books intended for all age groups. I’ll read literary, nonfiction, graphic novels, and bestsellers. All that matters is that it be a good read. Let me match you to some good reads that you may have missed!

I'm not a great cook, and I don't have a lot of time to cook. But I love, love, love browsing cookbooks! Here are some of our recently acquired cookbooks that have the one thing I require: great photos. I may never make any of the recipes, but, thanks to these cookbook authors and their photographers, I've spent quality time salivating over the photos.
Steampunk is a genre that imagines what would happen in a society where technology is powered by steam instead of electricity. Many steampunk novels grapple with our fear of technology and explore what technology can do to us or make us do.
