ANNAPOLIS, MD — An Anne Arundel County librarian competed Monday on the "Jeopardy!" game show.

Leann Craumer, a 34-year-old Catonsville resident, works in the Anne Arundel County Public Library headquarters.

Craumer previously worked at the county's Maryland City at Russett Library. Before that, she worked in Baltimore's Enoch Pratt Free Library system, The Capital reported.

"Our staff will be rooting for her, and we hope you do, too!" the Anne Arundel County Public Library said on Facebook before the show.

The Capital said Craumer held the lead at one point, but she didn't win the episode.

"It was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I would do it again in a heartbeat if I was given the opportunity," Craumer told The Capital, noting that she had been taking the show's online tests to try out since 2016. "I am so excited to be a tiny part of the legacy of this show that I have been watching for most of my life, and that so many people enjoy in their own living rooms every night."

A photo of Craumer on the "Jeopardy!" set is posted here.
