Sonja Somerville

Salem Public Library
Teen Services Librarian
Salem, OR
Sonja Somerville is a recovering journalist and erstwhile grant developer and marketing specialist who finally decided what she really wanted to be was a librarian. She has her MLIS from Drexel University and The Funnest Job Ever getting teens excited about books, planning wildly fun and mostly educational programs, and generally creating chaos. Sonja is an active member and past chair of the Oregon Young Adult Network. She gets particularly giddy about book talking in the stacks, in classrooms, and at conferences; collection management (especially weeding!); social media; and developing teen leadership through the library's increasingly amazing Teen Advisory Board.
