Meet Rosalind Warren, librarian at Bala Cynwyd Library, author of “OUR BODIES, OUR SHELVES: A COLLECTION OF LIBRARY HUMOR”- just released!

Question: What’s your favorite thing to do in the City Ave area?

Answer: Walk! I love to walk and this is a terrific area for walking. There are beautiful neighborhood streets and terrific shopping and dining destinations, plus the Cynwyd Trail! I’ve been walking for many years and never get tired to heading out the door to enjoy this area.

Q: What’s your most significant accomplishment?
A: Being a good mom. My essays have appeared in the New York Times, I’ve published 13 humor books, and I’ve even been on the Today Show, but nothing makes me prouder than how well my son Tom Smith has turned out. (And, as his mother, I’m happy to take plenty of credit.)

Q: What are two things you can’t live without?
A: Coffee and Conversation. One of the best things about working at the Bala Cynwyd library is the opportunity to chat with our patrons. I’ve gotten to know a lot of interesting people.  And I can’t imagine a world without coffee. (Luckily, I don’t have to.)

Q: What were you doing the last time you looked at the clock and realized you lost all track of time?
A: Writing an essay. I always loose track of time when I’m writing. That’s part of the fun.

Q: What book do you think everyone should read?
A: My book, of course! Our Bodies, Our Shelves: A Collection of Library Humor
