Mara

Adult Services librarian Mara

Location: East Regional Library

Department: Adult services

Mara grew up in Illinois, and one of her fondest childhood memories is attending her local library’s annual Floats and Funnies event where she would watch Looney Toons and sip on a root beer float. In her free time, she enjoys having board game nights with her friends, seeing live music, reading (a few of her favorite books are In the Distance by Hernan Diaz, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, and The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson), and playing video games. She is passionate about providing equitable and inclusive programs and services for all community members.
