About Valerie Byrd Fort - Library Goddess
I spent 15 years as a librarian in elementary schools before deciding to take a break and stay home with my daughter. When my daughter is sleeping, I read and review children’s books and blog about my reading (and sometimes about my girl). I also teach Children’s Literature at the University of South Carolina as an Adjunct Professor for the School of Library and Information Science. I am passionate about the importance of reading and libraries. I am married to Marty Fort. He owns the Columbia Arts Academy and the Lexington School of Music. I enjoy cooking, Barre3, yoga, and reading. My favorite things to read are funny memoirs and young adult novels. I LOVE picture books, especially those about dogs and families. I am available for special projects, book talks, consulting, and speaking to teachers and librarians about books, kids, and reading. I am also very good with technology and am willing to create a presentation to suit your needs.
