About meI am a retired public library director(MSLS, SLIS). My library degrees are from Florida State University and University of South Carolina respectively. My wife is a retired school librarian. We met at Florida State University's graduate school (in Library and Information Science) in 1976.

About my libraryI collect books on Sherlock Holmes, Abraham Lincoln, and history. I also collect illustrated editions of Dickens' Christmas Carol. My wife is Cuban, hence the books in Spanish and on Cuba. She collects books on cooking, diet, and health.
