Nice to meet you! My name is Joanna Harris. I’m the new children’s librarian at Woodridge Neighborhood Library.

Lizzie, Woodridge’s wonderful former children’s librarian, will be at the newly renovated Northeast branch starting in February. She told me that I should write a post introducing myself to you all.

Here’s a little about me. I look forward to getting to know more about you!
