Coming to Rare Book School? My house is 1.3 miles from Alderman Library, on a quiet street close to restaurants and the campus shuttle. Very high quality foam sofa bed. Note to other guests: my listing is limited to RBS attendees. Thanks!
It's a two-story house with four bedrooms upstairs, one of which will be yours. The bedroom has hardwood floors, a queen-sized bed, bureau, bookcase, and armoire. The bathroom is shared with your host and is down the hall; there is a second bathroom downstairs.
You are free to use the kitchen while you are here; it has a gas stove and room in the fridge for your groceries. I will have coffee available in the morning. Downstairs is a comfortable living room for relaxing, and a large front porch for hanging out into the evening when it cools off. Upstairs is a comfy window seat just outside your room and a library down the hall with lots of books.
Interaction with guests
I will be around while you are here and am happy to give advice on Charlottesville, give you a ride to get groceries, and so on.
I have two sweet, funny, indoor-only cats, and guests will to be responsible for helping me keep them inside by closing doors firmly and entering and exiting the house quickly.
This is a quiet, relaxed home. No smoking in the house. Guests may not bring pets. There are two indoor-only cats in the house.
I am a rare book and manuscript librarian and scholar. I am friendly and outgoing, and I travel quite a bit for my job. I like to see as much as I can of the places I visit, and when possible I like to walk everywhere. My most recent trip was to Iceland and Denmark. I am originally from Berkeley, California, and I lived in Austin, Texas for six years before moving to Charlottesville, where I enjoy the beautiful landscape and rich history. I am a daytime tourist (no nightlife for me) and a quiet, respectful guest.
