Library

My name is Anika Gemmell and I'm so excited to be working as the librarian at the Saratoga Springs campus this upcoming school year! I have always loved reading, and I'm so excited to foster a love of reading in all the students I work with. I grew up in Salt Lake, and am married to my husband, Jalen, from New Zealand. We met when I was living abroad in the Netherlands. 
 
I have a Bachelor's degree in Art History from Brigham Young University and love art and the humanities. Some of my favorites include anything Dutch, especially Northern Renaissance and Dutch Baroque artists, as well as modern artists like Matisse and Kandinsky. Recently, because of my husband, I've been learning more about Polynesian and Maori art. I fell in love with teaching and education working inside museums, and am excited to now bring that into the library! 
 
I love to travel, paint, and find cool things to do all over Utah, I especially love visiting museums of any kind! I also really love to read, some of my childhood favorites include the Harry Potter series, the Fablehaven Series, and anything by Gail Carson Levine. Some of my current favorites include Wild Swans by Jung Chang and anything by John Steinbeck or Walt Whitman.
