Get to Know KDL: Aislynn from Caledonia Twp.

Aislynn is an Assistant Branch Librarian at our Caledonia Twp. Branch. Aside from regular circulation duties, she creates book displays, assists with youth/teen book recommendations and is in charge of ordering the office supplies for her branch. 

"My favorite part of my job is when I am able to solve a little mystery for a patron," Aislynn said. "Whether that be finding a book they were looking for or fixing a technology snafu. Especially with everything that has transpired over the last year, it feels so good to know people are smiling under their masks." 

Let's get to know Aislynn a little bit better.

The best book I have ever read is… 

This frequently changes, but lately I have not been able to get Lemons by Melissa Savage out of my head. It is a middle-grade level historical fiction that takes place in the Big Foot Capital of the World during the 1970s. It is humorous, heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once. A great read for young and adult readers! 

If I had a day all to myself, I would spend my time… 

In my hammock under the warm sun with a book or notebook in hand while listening to Tall Heights.  

The talent I really wish I had is… 

Baking. Most things I make turn out a little funny. I would love to be able to make beautifully decorated cakes and pastries.  

The best trip I have ever taken was to… 

A ten-day trip to Italy and Spain with five of my friends. We visited Venice, Florence, Rome and Barcelona. We happened to be in Venice during Carnevale and got to see many people dressed up in fancy costumes. One of my favorite parts of the trip was the amount of gelato I consumed. 

When I was a child, I wanted to grow up to be… 

An author. I have not given up on this dream yet. I hope to find my books on KDL shelves someday! 

Three things I couldn’t live without are… 

A notebook, music, and a good pair of sunglasses.
