About Me

Hi! I'm Melaina (they/them). I am a retired veterinary technician turned librarian! I brought my empathy and compassion forward approach to working with animals to throw myself head first into becoming a teen librarian. I love queer YA books, narwhals, presenting at conferences, and talking to authors.
