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 →

To participate, make a post or comment answering the three questions, link up to the host (Sam)’s post, and check out what others are reading and talking about!

April Wrap-Up, Semester Reflections, & May Goals

School has been nearly the only thing on my mind since late January. If I say "this was the hardest semester of my life" a thousand times in this post, don't let it cheapen the reality of that statement! Four classes while working forty hours a week is no joke. I can't even begin to... Continue Reading →

Tackling the TBR #21

It has become apparent that my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Who knows, perhaps as my list (hopefully) shrinks, you will find a few books to add to your own!
