Mary
JoAnne

Joanne doesn't like having her picture taken.  She has been with the Ninth Street Book Shop since 1990.  Her career started 33 years ago working at her sister's used bookstore, Second Reading, in Bellefonte, Delaware.  She also worked at South Bay Books on Market Street in Wilmington.  In charge of Afro-American urban fiction, mysteries, science fiction/fantasy and true crime, her first love in reading has always been the classics.  She later branched out to "cozy" mysteries, armchair travel, memoirs and some fiction. When asked what she likes best about working here, she replied, "What's not to love?"

YaYa

YaYa has been with us since May 2012.  Her job is always changing: she could be receiving one day and shelving the next.  She is very book-oriented and enjoys reading anything that comes her way.
