I'm a circulation clerk in a children's library...I love my job and love to read all the cool books we get. At least when we have $$ in the budget to order books. I also sing, mostly classical. I love music, esp. Bach. Working on my German so that I can talk to my mother in law--currently we write each other post-it notes. :) I have a ragamuffin cat named Teddy. If I can figure out how to post pictures, I'll put one up of him! I'd love to hear from other German-American couples.
