Holly Hibner is the Adult Services coordinator at the Plymouth District Library in Plymouth, Mich. She has a mild obsession with weeding (ok, maybe not so mild), and can usually be found in the stacks taking inventory. She also loves all things techie and the challenge of a good reference question. Holly is the co-author with Mary Kelly of the book Making a Collection Count and the popular blog Awful Library Books.
