Hi! My name is Erin Walker and I’m a librarian navigating the wonderful world of public library services for children, teens, and families. I completed my MLIS at the University of Western Ontario in 2010 and I’m currently employed as a children’s librarian in a rapidly growing community north of Toronto. Before becoming a librarian, I worked in the Canadian children’s book industry as a marketing coordinator and publicist.
I’m an avid volunteer currently serving on the executives of Librarians Without Borders and CLASY (Canadian Libraries Are Serving Youth) and a Best Books for Kids and Teens selection committee. I also participate on the OLA’s White Pine Award steering committee.
In my spare time, I enjoy people watching, ice-skating, and the occasional craft project. I love pandas, blueberry pancakes, and Coronation Street. I’m not very tall but have been told I have “spectacular dimples.”
