Series: Pratt Profile

Your name?
Ny'ilah Covington

Your age?
38... how did the number get so high!

Your local branch?

Your favorite spot in the Library?
Where I eat lunch. My current lunch spot is the mezzanine of the Fiction/Teen Dept, but it will be changing soon I think.

What are you currently reading?
Knitting books, vintage clothes books, and "The Paradise Prophecy" by Robert Gregory Browne.

What book would you recommend to readers right now, and why?
Hunger Games audiobookI love to listen to audio books, so I would recommend listening to "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins. The reader made the book captivating and exciting. I can't wait to listen to the next in the series, "Catching Fire."

What is one book you could not finish, and why?
"The Breed" by Chase Novak. A couple is so desperate to get pregnant that they go to horrific extremes to make it happen. I'm not entirely sure, but I think they actually wanted to eat their own children and the thought of that made me physically ill... eeeeeekkkkk. I now realize that the horror genre is not for me anymore.

What are your job title and location?
YA Librarian/Assistant Manager, Central Library.

What does your job entail?
Along with doing librarian duties like readers advisory, completing the pick list and assisting with homework, I am doing class visits, helping to manage FIC/YA. I also collaborate with School and Student Services.

Describe your typical workday.
Reading email, pick list, completing reports, possibly scheduling meetings, class visits, and learning others parts of my job (I am not a "Seasoned Vet" at at Central yet)

Describe up to three things you like about working in the library.
My co-workers in FIC/YA Dept, having access to more materials to assist the public and BOOKS a PLENTY!
