Each month we love to introduce you to community members who use the Northwest Georgia Regional Library System. This month I would like to introduce you to Lynne Morrissey. Morrissey dropped by the Dalton-Whitfield County Public Library recently and left with a bag full of great books. She is an avid reader who visits often. Read on to find out more about Morrissey.

Question: Tell us a little about yourself.

Morrissey: As soon as I learned to read as a child I started reading and never stopped. It’s my therapy. I never let a day go by without reading.

Q: How do you use the library?

Morrissey: I often go online in the library. My only other online access is my phone.

Q: Why is the library important to you?

Morrissey: So many books to take out.

Q: What is your favorite book of all time? If not a book, then a movie or TV show.

Morrissey: “Judas Child” by underrated author Carol O’Connell.

Q: What was the last book you recommended to a friend?

Morrissey: “Judas Child” by Carol O’Connell.

Q: If you could have three authors over for dinner (living or dead), who would you invite?

Morrissey: Carol O’Connell, Margaret Mitchell, Nelson DeMille.

• I hope you enjoyed getting to know Morrissey. We have a wonderful community and I adore sharing community members with you. If her love of author Carol O’Connell sparked your interest you should drop by the library and check out some of her books.
