Who We Are
Hello and welcome to the Westminster Public Library Teen Underground website! Our website/blog serves teens in and around Westminster, Colorado. The Westminster Public Library's teen services librarians and Teen Advisory Board create the reviews and content for this site.

I have been a Young Adult/Teen Services Librarian at WPL since Dec. 2004, and love working with teens, teen fiction, and creating teen programming. I had four teens of my own, so it seemed a natural fit for me at the library. I received my MLIS degree from DU, and love reading and discovering how to help teens find the information that makes them successful in school and life. I work part-time at the College Hill Adult and Children's desks, so I hope that you stop in to say hi, and ask for my help with your reading and information questions.

I started working as a Young Adult/Teen Services Librarian in December, 2015 after receiving my MLIS degree from Emporia State University. I am a purveyor of all things Pop Culture, but comic books and graphics novels will always have a place on my shelf. I work at both the Children's and Adult Information desks at Irving Street. I'm always eager to discuss YA novels, graphic novels, movies and video games, so stop by and say hello.

I.B. Anonymous
I am a violinist. I am also in 7th grade. My favorite music is almost anything heavy metal, rap, or rock.

Paul Drosu
Gamer and a HUGE reader, I am a 14 year old lover of books. I plan on giving weekly posts on books and games, as well as having comment votes on what book I should rate next. FABULOUS!!!

Jerome
So, I am Jerome, a member of tab. I like to be a typical teen (read, play soccer, hang out). My favorite series of all time is Percy Jackson. Rick Riordan is my hero. If your trying to get into reading, go ahead and do it. Hopefully, my blog posts will inspire the reader in you. Every one has a reader in them!

Jacob
Hi, my name is Jacob, and I love to read. I go fishing with my grand parents, and I play baseball and tennis. I run cross country, and besides that I read and play video games. Reading is fun, and I recommend it to everyone.

Dylan
Salutations fellow homo sapiens. I go by the given birth name of Dylan, but that is irrelevant in the current text. My enjoyable pass times include soccer, boxing, reading and playing electronic devices on the television (video games.) I have been a person for some time now but not long enough. now stop reading this.

Ellie
Hallo! I am a native to Colorado where I enjoy fishing and skiing. Some of my favorite authors are Sarah J Maas, Leigh Bardugo, and Marie Lu. When I'm away from reading, I enjoy playing the piano, strumming my ukulele, fencing, and making coffee.

Sangati
Hi, I'm Sangati. I'm pretty much a basic teenager. Think old guy making fun of me for being such a millennial. I'm pretty into art so if you ever need a cool artist to follow hit me up. Or not. . .that's just a bit weird. But I will recommend Banksy. He's pretty awesome and an amazing punster. I am also a resident book nerd. Ask me anything and I will answer. Can't promise that the answer is correct but. . . 

Hirali
Hi, I'm Hirali. I am from India,and I speak at least 4 languages. I also like to draw sometimes and I read a lot when I'm bored. I also love sports,like soccer,tennis,football. Have you ever watched television for like a whole day and never get bored? ....Well I don't think so because everyone gets bored sometimes,but me I never get bored of it. Well this all about me,mostly.

    1. The TAB members post reviews of books, movies, music, games and more on the blog, as well as help with poll questions, teen monthly contests, teen programming, and other tasks that help out the library and the Teen Underground spaces. Just come to our next meeting to see if you would like to join. The only requirements are that you love reading, are interested in promoting all things teen at the library, and commit to at least 6 months of volunteering at the library!
