Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Sharlene from Real Life Reading that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

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.

WWW Wednesday 10/13/2021

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s stand for the following questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? 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! I typically participate once a month, approximately in the middle of the month, as a halfway check-in on my monthly reading goals.

Wrapping Up September 2021

Is it really already the end of September? (I know, I'm turning into one of those bloggers - sorry!) The beginning of the month, and the books I read then, feel so far away. I looked at the title of the first book and thought "was that really this month?" It may have only been... Continue Reading →

Back to (Library!) School // Semester 4 Overview

It's a habit of mine to share a little about the classes I am taking each semester as I pursue an MLS degree, and the fall semester started Monday. Usually, I have a pretty good grasp from the beginning on how each class will go. This semester, however, is a little less structured than previous... 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 →

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 →
