Spring 2022 Semester Preview

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a titled librarian? As I am working through my degree, each semester I share an overview of the classes I am taking. Today's post covers year two, semester two of working toward an MLS.

New Release Spotlight: The Department of Rare Books & Special Collections

I think I am more excited about this release than I ever have been before about an author by whom I haven't read anything else!

First Line Friday 22.1: The Personal Librarian

How could I not join the first FLF of the year? Today I am linking up with Reading Is My Superpower and featuring the first new book I started reading this year. 

September Rambling

Today's post is brought to you by chamolille-fueled late-night homework sessions, the atmosphere of the picture book section in the library, chillhop background music, and the maple leaf-shaped lights that are strung across the top of my desk. No, this post isn't sponsored. These are just a few of the things I'm appreciating during a... Continue Reading →

September TBR & Goals 2021

Usually when I write monthly TBR & goals posts, I feel like I'm overflowing with things to do and looking forward to accomplishing so much in the month! This time, I'm a little hung up on how much I will have to read for my children's literature class. I know they're all children's books and... Continue Reading →

“Why Do You Need A Master’s Degree To Alphabetize?” Or, Library School Semester 3 Overview

Welcome back, Reader! Today's post goes out to the customer my colleague interacted with a while ago who was obstinate over the fact that becoming a titled Librarian requires a Master's Degree, because he knew the alphabet before he was in kindergarten and "that's really all you need!" I'm here to inform you that the alphabet is not the only thing you need to know to work in a library. I could go on a tirade about the ignorance of such a statement and detail some of the many skills and knowledge needed to be an adequate, much less good, librarian, but I don't think that would do anyone much good. Instead I'm going to tell you about the classes I'm taking this summer and the role the topics they cover play in librarianship.

Wrapping Up May 2021

My summer classes begin tomorrow, as does my library's Summer Reading program. I'm looking forward to both; it has been very nice to catch up a bit over the past few weeks, though. Mom and I even went to the zoo last week, just because! Today in the real world I will be waxing my car, grocery shopping, and finishing up a few things that need to be wrapped up before classes restart. Here on the blog, I'm wrapping up all of my reading & related activities from the month of May!

Mini Book Review: Irrepressible Reformer by Wayne A. Wiegand

Happy Friday! This is going to be a somewhat strange weekend for me, as I am off work today, do work tomorrow, and then have Sunday off like normal plus Monday for Memorial Day. I hope to get some last-minute reading and planning done, as my summer classes start on Tuesday. Today I'm sharing a... Continue Reading →
