Christina Lorper

Hello! I am Christina Lorper, a student in the MLIS program at Queens College. I am currently taking my core courses, one of which is 700 The Technology of Information.
In this course I am learning how to use various information technologies to enhance my skill set and prepare to be a librarian in the 21st Century. I graduated from SUNY New Paltz in 2018 with a BA in History and minors in Art History and Film& Video Studies.

Not to mention enjoying the literal the fruits (or vegetables) of my labor.


I love reading a variety of different genres, especially historic nonfiction, fantasy, dystopian literature and gothic. Here are a few of my favorite books:
