With a background in Anthropology and professional training in Library Science, Sacha Page worked as an archivist and public librarian for many years. After taking some time from work to raise her children she began volunteering with WEPac, an organization that brings library services to Philadelphia public schools. That experience opened her eyes to the wonders of Elementary school librarianship. Sacha had the pleasure of working as a librarian at Friends Central where she continued to deepen her practice as a children’s librarian. She has always loved libraries as a safe space to explore, ask questions, discover something new or be immersed in the magical places that books can take a reader. Sacha is an avid traveler and loves trying new foods. She returns to Jamaica, her island home, at least once a year to see her family and spend time by the sea. Sacha lives in Wynnewood with her husband, children Alexandra and Eli, and her dog Jett. Sacha enjoys being outdoors, swimming, traveling, baking, and reading. She is an animal lover and weather watcher.
