Social Media & Events Librarian * Children’s Book Writer * Author of ADHD AND ME

“I write books that inspire the power of imagination and creativity. Imagination is one of the most innovative and wonderful tools we have. It can be used in all facets of life. Imagination leads to inventiveness… Inventiveness leads to outside-of-the-box thinkers. And we all know that outside-of-the-box thinkers make creative problem solvers. But imagination is useful in other ways too. It can lend a hand when we are feeling the weight of the world on our shoulders by creating a safe haven of escape… a peaceful retreat for the mind to recover, and come back again. Imagination is priceless.

-Chelsea DiCicco-

Chelsea (she/her) is a tea drinker, book reviewer, fort builder, stuffed animal collector, jewelry maker, cinephile, night owl, midnight coffee brewer, ADHD girl, and Hufflepuff. Her favorite past-time is being seven years old and living in Washington State. Her favorite expressions include (but are not limited to) "yippie-kayak-other-buckets," - by Charles Boyle, from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and "stay fresh cheese bags."  When she's not shelving or recommending books as a Librarian, she's usually home, reading or writing her own.

Chelsea loves everything about working in the library. Not only is she surrounded by books, but she's able to help people in her community gain access to wonderful free programs. Chelsea hosts, plans, and organizes a variety of monthly events and programs that center around hands-on-learning and interactive play that involves books, art, and nature. One of her favorite programs is her S.T.E.A.M. Homeschool Group. 

Chelsea is a big fan of sunshine, hammocks and blankets and loves being near the water. She's also an animal enthusiast. Fun fact: she has a sloth backpack (affectionately known as 'Seth the Sloth') that she wears pretty much everywhere. Growing up her two heroes were Jane Goodall and Steve Irwin. Although she loves all animals, foxes and bats are her favorites. So, if you really want to impress her, start a conversation about one of the two and you can't go wrong.
