Anyway, for those of you who don't know me, I'm currently the Cataloging and Collection Development Coordinator at the Lawrence Public Library in Lawrence, Kansas. I've also worked as a library director, and before that, a reference librarian. I have a MLS from the SLIM program at Emporia State University and a BA in English and Math (with honors!) from Graceland University (in Iowa, not Tennessee).
I became a librarian because I love books and reading (which is so not what I do all day). I continue to be a librarian because I have a passion for sharing knowledge, teaching people new skills, sharing good reads, and ensuring everyone has equitable access to the resources, information, and entertainment they desire and need. That's a mouth full.
What else could I tell you? I love planning programs, teaching computer classes, providing reader's advisory, and even shelving books! I'm way too obsessed with social media. I enjoy blogging. I used to write poetry. I don't read near as much as I should or want. And I dream of some day writing and publishing a book (who doesn't?). That's about all.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my blog!
