About Me

Hi! My name is Angela Critics. A recent empty-nester, I am enjoying the chance to explore new challenges and spend more time on familiar hobbies.  Volunteering in a library convinced me to go back to school to pursue my MLIS. During my studies I’ve become fascinated by how technology helps us connect to information. Since a move back to the States, I’m focusing on digital library applications including online book reviews and virtual reference through the Internet Public Library. My previous digital home was at Angela’s Library Space. Now I have three WordPress blogs all linked out of The Quilting Librarian. Check out my digital portfolio on that site! I am currently working at a Young Adult/Reference Librarian at the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library in Charlottesville, VA.

I’m a fan of good food and good drink and enjoy cooking. I’m a slow quilter because I like to work by hand. My header picture is a detail of a quilt I pieced and quilted by hand for my daughter. I also enjoy applique.

    Hi Angela, Cool that you are blogging. Do you post your reviews on Amazon?

      I started with a wiki and am now trying blogging, though I have been shamefully bad about adding posts lately. I post my reviews on LibraryThing where I am AngelaCinVA. I also post them on Book Tracker on Facebook.
