About me

I work at the Lone Tree Library as a public service technician. We serve the patron, and we answer their questions, reference questions. We also recommend some of the books they may like. If we don’t have them, we place a hold for them and the books will come out of other branches. They just need to come over and pick them up.

Avid traveler

We started pretty early. I have two boys, one turns 30 this July and one is 23. We traveled by car. Then in 1998, they are older, and they get bored sitting in the back of a car, so we started taking them to travel around the world.

My husband and I are from Taiwan, so we started from Japan when my younger son was older, in middle school. So then we take them in 1999, we spent a month in Europe, and they like it, so we started doing more trips in Europe for one month in the summer time, but not all the countries.

Helping people


I enjoy working in the library, because I feel that I get paid to help people. I’ve lived here and worked here for the past 25 years, and I see all the changes. The little kids that have their own little kids, the middle aged become older.

We share some experiences. Sometimes they come over and say, "I got hurt." Some people have lost their spouse, so they come over and chat. I feel that it’s not just the books. I can help people.
