About Me

Hello! My name is William and I'm a librarian! Some of you may have found your way here from the little tumblr I run called Librarian Problems. Maybe you know me from Twitter? Perhaps you've stalked me on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram or Pinterest? Or maybe you actually know me IRL!

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!
