Introducing Mindy Rhiger, Middle Grade/Young Adult Non-Fiction

Today we meet Mindy Rhiger, organizer for the Non-Fiction MG/YA category:

MindyrhigerI’m Mindy Rhiger, organizer for the Young Adult and Middle Grade Non-Fiction category.  I’ve been involved with the Cybils since the first year, and I’ve been blogging about books at since 2005. 

I read and review all over the map.  My strongest ties are to YA Fiction, as I started out in librarianship as YA Librarian at a public library.  My current job at The Bakken Museum in Minneapolis has me focused more intently on science, invention, and engineering-related titles for kids and teens.  I love the opportunity to connect kids with these topics through hands-on science.

In addition to book reviews, I also blog about library and museum programming, early literacy, and anything book-related that strikes my fancy.

When I’m not at the museum, I’m exploring the world with my very active nine-month-old daughter.
