[Description and date of item], [Box and folder number], Mônica Carnesi papers, 2015-2017, Free Library of Philadelphia, Children’s Literature Research Collection.

I’ve always loved drawing and painting, and everything related to illustration: paint, brushes, pencils, color pencils, blank notebooks, art supply stores, libraries, bookstores, picture books, you get the idea.

My love of illustration and of books led me to another career: I’m a librarian at The Free Library of Philadelphia. A perfect fit for my interests! I love dogs too. Growing up, my first dog was a little mutt named Snoopy.

I’m originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
