bib·​lio·​phile | \ ˈbi-blē-ə-ˌfī(-ə)l

a lover of books especially for qualities of format, a book collector

I'm Carley, your resident bibliophile. I was raised in libraries and have always found refuge in words. I am an avid reader and process the world through writing.

I studied History and English as an undergraduate student and am currently pursuing a master's degree in library and information sciences. I have worked in public libraries for over ten years and currently specialize in children's and young adult library services. I am a native Georgia girl and currently live outside of Athens with my husband and our grumpy cat.

I am passoniate about mental health and chronic illness advocacy. I believe that stories have power and that every person has a unique and important story to tell in their own right. My hope is that my words will inspire and encourage you regardless of where you are in your own story.
