Meet your New Librarians!

About Angelique “Miss A”:

The library’s new Children’s Librarian is Angelique Krohn, aka “Miss A.” Angelique’s duties include managing the children’s and YA collections and hosting programs for children, teens, and families. She comes to us from Reading Public Library in PA, where she served as their Youth Services Coordinator for five years. You can reach her by email at youthservices@lambertvillelibrary.org, or just stop by the second floor of the library and say hi!

 

What are you looking forward to the most in your future at Lambertville Free Public Library? 

I’m really excited to be working with a community that loves their library! I’m looking forward to finding ways we can safely bring the community together in ways that nourish our desire for connection and entertainment while promoting literacy. Look out for programs and events like virtual bouncy book time, StoryWalks, Dungeons & Dragons, and art workshops! 

 

Why do you love public libraries? 

Information and knowledge are power, and public libraries make sure that everyone has access to these basic human rights. A good public library also acts as a communal gathering place, where all are welcome. 

 

What are you currently reading? 

I just finished reading The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandani, which is a touching historical fiction book about a young girl and her family who flee from Pakistan to the new India right after Indian independence and the start of the partition. My partner is from India, so it was interesting to learn more about the history of his culture while enjoying a Newberry Honor book.

Let me know what I should read next! 

 

What are some of your favorite books? 

Harry Potter, the Mirror Visitor series by Christelle Dabos, anything illustrated by Brendan Wenzel, and anything written by Katherine Applegate, Octavia Butler, or Ursula K. Le Guin. 

 

What’s an interesting fact about you? 

I’ve hiked the entire Appalachian Trail! 

 

About Hannah:

The library’s new Adult Services Librarian is Hannah Born (Yu).  Hannah is ecstatic to build and foster the library adult programming here in Lambertville. She comes to us from around the world as a former military brat and traveler. She has worked and volunteered in many library settings over the past 10 plus years and brings a heart of music from her professional vocalist side. You may reach her by email at programs@lambertvillelibrary.org, or MTuTh during the week by phone: +1 609-397-0275

What are you looking forward to the most in your future at Lambertville Free Public Library? 

I dream of connecting a thriving, diverse, and informational community. We all are thinkers and makers in our own rites and sharing that together is my greatest goal in our literacy environment. Look out for book clubs, fireside stories, and meetings of the mind from different backgrounds through creative classes/lectures of varying topics. 

 

Why do you love public libraries? 

It is the golden goose of a town. The freedom to learn without restraint is such an amazing privilege and I hope we can remind everyone of that across our path at LFPL. 

 

What are you currently reading? 

I am reading Troy by Stephen Fry for our upcoming Book Split Book Club meetings. Historical Fiction, Biography, Mindfulness, and Fantasy are my top favorite subjects at the moment. I also enjoy the lightness and frivolity of Korean Manhua (Web Comics). 

 

What are some of your favorite books? 

Jane Eyre, Anne of Green Gables (anything by L.M. Montgomery), Life of the Beloved, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. Some favorite authors are Jane Austen, Henri Nouwen, Brene Brown, and Tara Brach. 

 

What’s an interesting fact about you? 

I’ve sung a solo in the National Cathedral in DC and performed with folk singers in Ukraine. I also have two wonderful children.
