Barb “Ms. Barb” Somma

Barb has been with the library since 2010.  Before coming to the Frank Sarris Library she earned a B.S. in Elementary Education, and a Masters in Special Education.  She has been working with children for the past 30 years in many venues: public/private schools, preschools, and afterschool programs.  She also has two children of her own.

If you want to hear a great story, sing some songs and do awesome crafts then you need to meet Ms. Barb.  Find her in the story time room on weekday mornings, leading story time, Little Picassos, Wiggles and Giggles, and Summer Quest.  If she is not there, you’ll find her in her office busy planning the next great children’s program or event.
