About meI'm the Patients' Librarian at Mendota Mental Health Institute in Madison, WI. I'm also a single (and looking) 41-year-old fun person who loves choral music, reading, traveling, historical re-creation (SCA Laurel in Bardic Arts), languages, all kinds of crafts (knitting is the main one right now, but I also paint, embroider, and make costumes).
About my libraryIt's a lot like a small public library, but I don't have a board, state certification requirements, or, well, any money. (That last one is pretty recent.) We have esp. thorough collection concentrations in self-help and mental health, as you may imagine. Not open to the public; we are on WISCAT, and if you need something we have, ask your local public (or academic, if you are a student) for it, and we'll lend.
