About the Staff

Alex Giresi

Alex Giresi is the Head of the Teen Services Department. They use any pronouns (she/he/they) and have a background in anthropology and taking naps. She has three cats, loves all animals, is a big fan of trivia (even though she is bad at it), and loves learning new things. Her favorite types of books are romance, horror, and science fiction. Alex is always looking for ways to best serve and connect to our community. She is always open to talk and try her best to answer any questions you might have!

Eric Baressi

Eric Barresi is the Teen Services Department’s full-time librarian and resident yogie. Avid console gamer (PS5 & Switch) — plays a ton of Dead by Daylight, random Playstation titles and Nintendo titles like Animal Crossing, Super Smash Bros., Pokemon and more. Eric loves gardening and enjoys trying to grow native wildflower plants and fruit trees – if you ask me about pawpaw trees I will have a lot to say. Enjoys writing, drawing, yoga and audiobooks. Open to all book genres! Love horror, self-help, LGBTQIA+ and more. Here to help you with any book recommendations, programming ideas to try out or just to hear about what’s going on in your life!

Churro (the Chinchilla)

Churro came to us during our darkest hour. Using her magical sense of perfect timing, this little lady carved herself a home in our department, radiated heart-warming energy, and taught us the lesson of acceptance, all in accordance with the harmonies of the universe. Who is Churro, really? Nobody can be completely sure. But when you pick her up and gaze into her wise eyes, you will sense her tales of mystery, and secrets lost to time immemorial…you will want to know what she is thinking–but you never will. All you can feel is what she wants you to feel: love and comfort.
