Chalishia Alvarez, Children’s Librarian:  I’m Ms. Chalishia, Youth Services Director in charge of programming for birth-5th grade. I spent 10 years teaching high school Spanish before taking a break to start my own family. Now my three-year-old and I love being involved at the library! I try to bring as much fun and education as I can to all of my programs.
