Kasey (Mallen) Whalley has been working in and with libraries for over ten years. After completing her undergraduate degree in English from McMaster University, she immediately enrolled in and completed Seneca College’s Accelerated Library and information Technician program.
She is currently employed as a Library and Information Technician with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. Working with children and teens has made her keenly aware of how old she is. She’s endeavored to stay hip and with it by working with children’s book selection committees, public library teen programs, instructing workshops, and leading her own after school club for readers and writers, aptly named Authorize. In between playing videogames, walking her dog, and collecting book-themed socks, she is working towards her Masters of Information from the University of Toronto.
