I'm a librarian named Jessica Rodrigues.
I am the Head of Information Services at a small public library, a library trustee, and I teach a couple classes at a community college library technical assistant (LTA) program. I'm located in the suburbs of Chicago. I am passionate about equipping librarians at small or underfunded libraries to provide big-budget services at little or no cost.
I began posting online as a way to save and share program ideas with people I met at library conferences and my Goodreads activity spilled onto the site as well.
In addition to librarianship I offer consulting and technical writing services.

Book review policy
I enjoy mostly urban fantasy, science fiction, horror, economics, political science, and American history -- but not exclusively.
I have a soft spot for indie authors and will accept indie or self-published requests if they are in a genre I enjoy.
I read paperbacks, mobi, epub, and docx. Please, no pdf.
I generally post reviews two weeks before publication date at decafjess.com and goodreads.com/decafjess.
