Here are favorite hobbies of 4 LWLC staff members:
Ericka Dudley, Access Services Librarian
"I like to consider myself a 'plant mom' because I love to collect and care for plants. Not only are plants therapeutic, but growing them helps individuals with patience and gratitude."
Neil Foulger, Electronic Resources / Serials Services Librarian
"Over the past ten years, I've become more knowledgeable about (and thus enjoy) the different music styles and popular songs from 1936-1961. Thank you, Alexander Street Press Music Package!".
"One of my favorite hobbies is playing video games. I'm not addicted to it, but I play quite often. Gaming helps me relax and have fun. I spend some of my free time playing games online with other gamers. I enjoy playing games like Fifa 2021, Nba 2k21, COD, and many other titles on my new Xbox Series X."
