About

Hi, my name is Samantha Ann Mairson and I’m a librarian living in New York. Thank you for visiting my web space.

Quick finds:

I love fiddling around with this website. Was it the first domain I ever owned? The only? ❤ My resilient personal characteristics include: thrifty, romantic, enthusiastic. Circa September 2018, I re-purposed samanthamairson.com to serve as the domain for my wedding website. Let’s be honest. The domain address is part of the reason I didn’t change my last name. Also, who needs an identity crisis and social security chore at the quarter century mark?

The wedding website morphed into a personal blog project documenting “The First 100 Days of Marriage”, which you will find archived in the 100 Days blog (in the top menu). I’m currently contemplating my next blog project.

My major interests are digital media and design, information security, activism on behalf of libraries, and all things education-nature-play. I’m a proud -if indebted- graduate of UConn’s pioneering Digital Media and Design program, and Syracuse University’s iSchool.

I work part-time as a children’s librarian at the Rye Free Reading Room and part-time as a webinar coordinator for EveryLibrary. I love working with kids and technology. I am currently expecting my first child and preparing for the new role of “mom”!
