About

Welcome to my little corner of the interwebs!

cropped-profilepic.jpgMy name is Kate Olson aka The Loud Library Lady and this is my home for all things BOOKS! I am currently a school librarian in Wisconsin and a very active book reviewer, with my main book community being on Instagram as @theloudlibrarylady. In addition to being a reviewer for School Library Journal, I offer book/manuscript critique services to authors  and founded Kid Lit Exchange in the summer of 2017.

I read constantly and read ABOUT reading whenever possible. I have 3 kiddos and a wonderful husband who put up with me having my head in a book at all times!

I have an undergrad in business, worked in the business world for a while, and then entered the wild world of education. I have too many teaching licenses to count and consider myself a bit of an expert on social media and trends in books.

If you are interested in submitting a book for review, please see my Review Policy page . If you would like to work with me on a book critique, check out my Critique Services page ~ I would love to hear from you!

Want to see all of my random bookish thoughts? My blog is the place for that!


Are we connected on Goodreads, Instagram and Twitter? If not, let’s fix that!
