Staff Picks: Patrice O’Donoghue

Patrice has been a nonfiction catalog librarian at CALS for 15 years. The best part of her job is looking at all the new books. “Outside of work, I’m a maker and all-around DIYer,” said Patrice. Her passions are knitting, beekeeping, and gardening. She usually has an audiobook going so she can keep up with her book club at the same time. Making a Life by Melanie Falick profiles 30 creative people ranging from fiber artists to woodworkers to potters. After reading it, Patrice wanted to visit all of them in their studios! She thinks you will, too.
