Jaime Graves, Library Associate at May Memorial Library

How long have you worked with the County?

I’ve been with Alamance County for almost five years and I’ve loved every minute of it.

Where are you from originally?

I was born and raised here in Alamance County, not far from Piedmont Dragway.

Do you have a hobby?

I’ve always had hobbies and they change frequently.  I loved baking for many years, then I did all things crafty like quilting, crocheting & cross-stitch.  My current hobby is blinging things out with rhinestones.

When you were little, what was your dream job?

My dream job as a child was being a veterinarian and while I still love animals, I don’t think I love them enough to deal with them everyday.  I love working at the library, creating new displays and new graphics.

What was the best part of your week/weekend?

The best part of my week is Friday evenings, the work week is over, the weekend hasn’t quite started and it’s so relaxing.

If your life was a song, what would the title be?

It would be “Good Riddance” by Green Day; I hope you had the time of your life.  That is my goal in life to find joy in everything I do and experience. And the song is really good too!

What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

I’m not sure how weird it is, but I’ve enjoyed boudin before.  It’s a pork sausage made with rice and vegetables.  It was delicious!

What’s your favorite TV Show?

My current favorite tv show is Call the Midwives, but I’ve always loved British shows like The Great British Bake Off & Downton Abbey.  I also a huge fan of documentaries!

What is your favorite thing to spend money on?

Right now, my favorite thing to spend money on is vinyl records.  I love music and listen to it non-stop when I can, so buying vinyl records is just another way for me to enjoy the music I love.

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve learned recently?

While making a poster for the library, I learned that trees can be male or female and they don’t die from old age.  I thought that was very cool!
