Shondra2016Shondra Brown works full-time as the Media/Community Outreach Librarian at her local library, which has always been one of her favorite places to visit! Never far from a book, Shondra can often be found with a book in one hand, and an iced coffee in the other! Her true love has always been reading, and she has thoroughly enjoyed reviewing books for her blog, www.givemetoday.blogspot.com, during the past few years. What is better than receiving free books for sharing your opinion with others?

Having graduated with an honors degree in Travel/Tourism, and a minor in Management, Shondra has had many jobs she has enjoyed throughout her life. Some of her most enjoyable work, however, has been in the form of volunteering for the different activities her children are in. Her time has been spent working as a Bible Quiz Coach and an Upward Cheerleading Coach for their church, a Girl Scout Leader, and a classroom helper, just to name a few. She currently leads a ladies knitting class on Wednesday evenings at her church as well! Many people often talk about what they do in their “down time”…that’s not a phrase that fits in to Shondra’s schedule!

Shondra and her husband, an elementary school teacher, make their home in Indiana, the heart of Amish Country. They have 3 children, a son and identical twin girls, along with 2 dogs and 5 cats (thankfully only one cat lives inside the house!).
