Meet the Kids' Librarians
Hi, I’m Caroline Richardson, children’s librarian at the Brookline Village library. Here are some fun facts about me:
I have been at the Public Library of Brookline for five years. Prior to that, I worked in children’s publishing and as the assistant children’s book review editor at a national, monthly book review publication.
I lead two weekly storytimes (one for two-years-olds and one for three-to-five-year-olds), our biweekly LEGO Club, our biweekly Mad Scientist Club (beginning robotics and circuitry), and our monthly crafts for ages six and up.
I think Bark, George! is the perfect picture book. Do you disagree? Want book recommendations or have questions about what the Children’s Room has to offer? Ask me!
I have been a children’s librarian for 17 wonderful years, 11 of them at Coolidge Corner. Before that I was a preschool teacher, fueling my excitement and skills for working with children and the books they love. I make sure to liven up my storytimes with movement, singing, play, puppetry, yoga, nature, and process art that reflects developmental learning.
My evolving dream is to turn the children’s room into a center for self-directed play and creativity. I could not do any of this work without the genius of the Coolidge Corner Library staff and our amazing Simmons interns.
We may look busy but don’t be shy. Come say “hi” and ask us a question! Your interests are our priorities.
