Hello everyone! This is Way Library’s Teen Librarian, Crystal. You may recognize me by my bright colored hair. If you’ve been by in the last year or so you may have seen me with purple, pink, blue, or green hair! Since I primarily do programming for our teens I know a lot about our teen (also known as YA or Young Adult) collection of books. When I’m not at the library you can find me cuddled up with a good book and my dog (named Mycroft after Mycroft Holmes) or playing board games/binge-watching WAY too much TV with my husband. I also enjoy purchasing bookish merchandise and writing fanfiction based on my favorite book and TV characters.

Request recommendations from Crystal.
