Meet the 2018 Organizers: Jennifer Wharton, Elementary/Middle Grade Nonfiction

Jennifer has been involved with Cybils since 2009 and is excited to be chairing the Elementary/Middle Grade Nonfiction category for another year.When not obsessively reading and blogging at one of her many blogs, including Jean Little Library, she is the head of the youth services department for the Matheson Memorial Library in Elkhorn, WI. She has reorganized much of the library to make easy nonfiction more accessible to families and children and loves to include nonfiction in storytimes, programs, and as many aspects of the library as possible. Jennifer sees nonfiction as an integral part of her personal mission to foster a sense of wonder and delight in children as they are introduced to the amazing world around them.
