Meet the Youth Room Staff… Drew
My name is Drew Heuser, and I’m the first ever Youth Services Clerical Assistant. I’m a recent addition to the library, having only started in January 2013, but being here has already impacted my life so much. I just started my first semester in grad school at Wayne State University to become a librarian, which I’m super excited about. My duties at the library include decorating the bulletin board every season, checking in the magazines and special needs collection, and keeping us fully stocked with coloring pages and bibliographies. Outside of work, I’m a born and raised choir boy; music will always be a huge part of who I am. I’m the biggest TV competition buff I know, and I can discuss Survivor and American Idol until I’m blue in the face. I’m also an Eagle Scout, and still love getting outdoors for a nature walk whenever I can. Of course, I also love reading anything I can get my hands on. Young Adult coming-of-age stories continue to be my favorites.
Hedgehug: A Sharp Lesson in Love by Ben Sutton (E SUT(HOLIDAY)) – This is the story of an adorable little hedgehog who just wants someone to be his Valentine but some of the other animals are put off by his spikes.
Beauty and the Beast (CHILD DVD BEA) –My favorite Disney movie ever! The songs are amazing, I can frequently be caught belting them at the top of my lungs in my car.
Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Waterston (J FICTION WAT (GRAPHIC NOVEL)) – This is a classic comic strip about a 6 year old boy and his best friend, a stuffed tiger. This is a whole collection of hilarious, imaginative adventures.
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein (J811 SIL) – In the genre of children’s poetry few names will ever be as pervasive and influential as Shel Silverstein. His writing is light and fun but still makes a strong connection with new readers.
Circle of Magic by Tamora Pierce (Y FICTION PIE) – This quartet is the journey of four magical children who have very little in common. The thing that draws them together is the way they control their magic, which is different from most of the other magic users in their society. The story follows their magical development and friendship while they overcome obstacles of nature, disease, and pirates.
