Jason has been working at the Library for 14 years, starting in Kids & Teens, and now as the Assistant Director. He loves his job and all the variety it brings, as well as interacting with staff and patrons.
Jason loves a little bit of everything, really, but is most passionate about reading, music, cooking, and gaming. A typical Friday night finds him either snuggled on the couch with his wife, some wine, and a good book, or at a friend's house playing Settlers of Catan and other Euro board games.
Jason's Current Picks:
As mentioned above, Jason loves a little bit of everything. His favorite reads are fantasy, sci-fi, mysteries, contemporary fiction, teen, and comics. But, since he has a decent commute, he also listens to a lot of audiobooks, which has led him to enjoy listening to memoirs read by the author. It's a big, messy mix, but he enjoys it.
