    • The Conscious Spacemaker

      As a little girl, I wanted to be a librarian when I grew up. I always felt so much peace at the library. I loved the quiet, the smell of the books, and the way time seemed to disappear! <3

    Personal Statement

    And when somebody says, "I don't need you to feed me," it's like they're saying, "I don't need to be loved." Just shut up and eat my food!

    Libraries are good!!

    "Bibliophile Perfume - For the librarian in your life! It's a blend of violets (because they're witty and shy), amber (because it smells kinda like binding glue), earth musk (for the dusty shelves), and black tea (because tea and books go so well together)."

    Just read!

    I heart books

    its the truth


    We Fairmont people--we are courageous, confident AND geeky. And that's just how we like it!
