Youth Services Staff

Cydney Clink, Head of Youth Services

Collection areas of interest and expertise:
I love picture books–especially those great for reading aloud to a group. I am also a fan of nonfiction–particularly poetry, joke books, and biographies. I also love helping adults find books to help them navigate their role as caregivers.

Favorite kid’s books:
My all time favorite children’s book is From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg. In a close second is The Monster at the End of This Book (Starring Lovable, Furry Old Grover) by Jon Stone. When I was growing up, I could not get enough of the Choose Your Own Adventure series.

Favorite grownup books:
Choosing favorites is so hard! Right now, I would say my favorite grown up book is A Man Called Ove by Backman. Oh… or Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. See, choosing a favorite is challenging.

Collection areas of interest and expertise:
As the Youth Collections Librarian my expertise is with the entire area, but I am passionate in finding new science fiction, fantasies, mysteries, and historical fiction.

Favorite kid’s books:
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle, which I discovered when I was 10 and loved it ever since. I think Mo Willems is brilliant and perhaps Knuffle Bunny is my favorite of his.
