Mrs. Laben's Profile
Born: I was born and raised in New York State's Hudson Valley.
Education: B.S. in Elementary Education SUC@Geneseo
M.L.S. University@ Buffalo
Career: I have worked in public, college, and school libraries. My very first job, when I
was a high school student, was working in the Julia L. Butterfield Memorial
Library. I am very fortunate that my career combines my greatest interests,
which are children, books, and reading.
Hobbies: Besides reading, my favorite hobbies are bird-watching and gardening. I am
also a long-suffering fan of the Buffalo Bills and the Buffalo Sabres.
Family: My husband and I are the proud parents of seven children ranging in age from
17 to 33. We are the proud grandparents of a one year old grandson, Clark Peter!
Miscellaneous Facts: My family includes two dogs, four cats, and assorted other pets
including a goat named Folger.
I love playing Scrabble, and I try to complete an online crossword
puzzle every evening.
Books I Read This Summer: I reread the first four books in the George R. R. Martin series A Song of Ice and Fire. I am now reading the fifth book in the series, A Dance With Dragons. I have also been trying to teach myself to knit, with limited success, following directions from a book.
