Lesley Ogle is from a small town in the middle of California. She earned her BA in English and her M.Ed. in School Library and Information Technology from Fresno Pacific University. Before working at Arcadia USD, she ran a small high school library in the Cow Capital of California. Her favorite book was The Book Thief until this year when she read My Lady Jane and fell completely in love. When she's not reading, she's singing show tunes to her cat, which he does not appreciate. Her favorite part about working in the library is getting to know students and putting the perfect book in their hands.
