Have You Met Mike?

We have not had a male staff member working at RML since I have been here, and probably much longer than that! So we are very excited that you are getting a chance to meet Mike Cramer, our newest staff member! 

Mike is taking over some of the duties that Linda (who retired last year!) used to do.  Take a minute to introduce yourself if you haven't already (he's very friendly and doesn't bite!)
I asked Mike to answer a few questions so we could get to know him better:

Ms Eileen: How old are you?
Mike: 25.
Ms Eileen: So basically, the same age as me. Great!

Ms Eileen: What was one of your fave books as a child?
Mike: I loved the Animorphs series by Katherine Applegate.  They were filled with action and the friendships between the characters was fantastic. If she ever wrote another book for the series I'd still read it!

Ms Eileen: What are some of your hobbies/interests?
Mike: I love to read of course and I also watch a lot of movies, especially scary ones!
Ms Eileen: Dear small children - don't let Mike recommend movies to you. And adults - you have to be prepared for nightmares as well.

Ms Eileen: If you had to fill in for Ms Patty or Ms Eileen in storytime, what would you read, and if you had to use a puppet, what would it be?
Mike: Either one of the Pigeon books by Mo Willems or an Eric Carle book.  My absolute favorite is "The Very Hungry Caterpillar".  And as for a puppet, either a dog, monkey or tiger.  Monkeys are my favorite animal though!

Ms Eileen: Fave Dr. Seuss book?
Mike: "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"  I still like to read through it every once in awhile.  It's great for all ages.

Ms Eileen: Fave kids movie?
Mike: Hugo.  Great visuals and a great story.
Ms Eileen: Ok, I take back what I said before. You can recommend movies to kids.

Ms Eileen: What's the best thing about working at RML?
Mike: Books, books, and more books.  And of course meeting everyone who comes into the library!
Ms Eileen: Oh, and didn't you just say "working with Ms Eileen"? right? Mike? Where'd you go?
