Meet Librarybeth (Beth Friese)

Librarybeth is a sometimes sweet, more often sassy, poetry-loving librarian. She’s worked with students from pre-k to college.  She loves writing, farmer’s markets, eating where the locals eat, back porches, and the Georgia Bulldogs. You’ll find her wearing Birkenstocks every day, whether it’s winter time or wedding season.

Beth serves on leadership in the Gwinnett County Public Schools community.  She speaks at conferences locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, sharing her insights on libraries, literacy, and diversity. Librarybeth also provides consulting and editing services for the small business community.
