Meet Elisabeth Scott, Reference Librarian and Social Media Coordinator at the Mississippi Library Commission. Ms. Scott is one of three reference librarians at the agency and one of her main duties is to answer a variety of questions for other state agencies and their staff, libraries and their staff, and the general public. She also coordinates social media for the library and serves as backup for interlibrary loan services. Elisabeth celebrated her ten year anniversary this past March.
Elisabeth is a huge fan of children's books. She recently attended the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival in Hattiesburg for the first time. "Other people idolize rock stars and actors. I just saw Jacqueline Woodson and Lois Lowry in person! It was a huge fangeek experience for me." Ms. Scott currently serves on the YA Selection Committee for the Magnolia Children's Choice Awards. She is also participating in the annual YALSA's The Hub Reading Challenge. Recent favorite books include Awkward by Svetlana Chmakova, Bone Gap by Laura Ruby, and Girls Like Us by Gail Giles.
Ms. Scott lives in Jackson with her gamer-geek husband and three ridiculously lazy cats.
