Welcome to #FDL’s feature column, Five Questions, where we ask library staff and other East Peoria residents roughly the same five questions. For our next Five Questions column, we’re interviewing Kris Tyler, one of FDL’s youth services specialists and library craft queen.
1. Who are you?
My name is Kris. I’m a Youth Services Specialist in the Children’s Department, and I love it! In my spare time I like to crochet, however, I can only make afghans. My family stays pretty warm in the winter. I also like to read, play Sudoku, and I collect used books.
2. What is your favorite part of working at FDL?
I really like the people that I work with here. I like helping kids find just the right book that they want to read. I love planning programs in the Children’s Department.
3. What are you reading/watching/listening to right now?
Right now I’m reading Economics in Wonderland by Robert Reich, Oh, Fudge by Nancy Coco and Junk Drawer Physics by Bobby Mercer. I am listening to Girls Who Code by Reshma Saujani and watching reruns of Perry Mason.
4. If you didn’t already have your dream job, what would you be doing?
I would like to be a LEGO Product Designer.
5. If you were a pirate, what would you name your boat?
