Jo Hansen and her dog

I grew up in a small Wisconsin town and discovered the magic of books at a young age. We had no computers back then and only two television channels, so when I was bored, I went to the library. I channeled my interest in other people’s stories during the 20 years I worked as a newspaper journalist. I have worked at Cook Library for 11 years and love my job. I get great satisfaction helping a patron find his or her next good book.
