Meet the Librarian

Hi! My name is Annamae Bolen, and I’m the new Teen Librarian and Youth Services Coordinator at the Ligonier Valley Library. I started at the beginning of June 2019, and wanted to share a little bit about myself.

I graduated from John Carroll University in May of 2018 with Bachelor’s in English. I plan on returning to school to earn my Master’s in Library Science and Information. I’m from Moon Township, PA (Right near the Pittsburgh Airport!). I grew up with my mom, my dad, and my younger sister, Emily. We have a two year old labradoodle named Sunny, and she loves snuggles. I played sports my whole life, and even played lacrosse for two years in college. Some of my passions include: knitting, reading, bullet journaling, spending time with my family, playing with my dog, traveling, and (most recently) cooking. I would love to meet you! Please stop in the library to see me at any time, or email me annamae.bolen@wlnonline.org
