In this edition of “Meet the Staff,” we learn a little more about our newest staff member, Ms. Casey!
A 2019 University of Akron graduate, Ms. Casey really enjoys being a member of the Youth Services staff at the Hudson Library. She loves being surrounded by books that she wants to read all day! One of her favorite things about the library is reading a book on the outdoor patio.
Her favorite storybook character is Winnie the Pooh, and she is a big fan of any Elephant and Piggie book by Mo Willems. When she is reading in her spare time, she often chooses books that are memoirs or historical fiction.
Ms. Casey enjoys spending time outdoors, including walking on the local national park trails, biking on the Towpath, and visiting farmers markets in the summer. She’s also working on expanding her balcony garden to grow house plants, herbs, and vegetables.
Her other hobbies include baking, cooking, trying new recipes, playing piano, reading, playing board games, and doing yoga. Ms. Casey started our “Story and a Stretch” program earlier this year, as a way to combine literacy and exercise for preschoolers.
She also loves dogs! She has two dogs who live with her parents, and she’s excited to someday get a dog of her own, too.
Fun fact about Ms. Casey: Her dream is to own a goat farm!
