Alameda County Library

We are in the process of developing a phased approach to reopening that ensures the health and safety of our communities and staff. In doing so, we are following the best available advice from our county, state, and national health officials as well as the American Library Association. We plan to share our reopening plan next month, and our website will be updated with the details of the plan. Read more

Book Match: Chelsey R.

Chelsey R.

Chelsey loves children’s literature for all ages, from picture books to middle grade novels. She can find your insatiable Harry Potter fan their next favorite series! She enjoys young adult fiction (both realistic and fantastical), and will even read adult fantasy if it’s got enough dragons in it. She also loves to read nonfiction and learn more on sociology, psychology, and anything else about why humans act the wacky ways we do.

Ask Chelsey what to read.
