Happy Towel Day to all my fellow hitchhikers!
Growing up I always thought that being a librarian would be the coolest. I mean, they just hang out in libraries all day and read, right? Well, turns out that’s not really true. Last month I sat down with Sharron Smith, manager of bibliographic services at the Kitchener Public Library, to chat about what librarians really do while on the job. This story originally ran in The Community Edition’s March issue.
I’ve always romanticized the idea of being a librarian. In my mind, librarians get to hang out in buildings filled with books, spend their days reading books and talking about books, and, most importantly, make their living off of being a book nerd. That’s what really happens when you sign up to be a librarian, right?
I haven’t had a lot of time to write about books lately, but I did write a couple pieces about my local library for The Community Edition (a monthly publication in Kitchener-Waterloo). Check out this piece about KPL’s new strategic plan, which was originally published in TCE’s March issue. I’ll share more stories about my favourite library soon.
I’ve always wanted to design my own agenda, and this year my friends over at MacLellan Baetz (MB) Publishing House let me make my notebook dreams come true! Now I have my very own, customized, handmade, space-themed agenda. Want to know why I designed it this way? Check out the blog I wrote for MB (which originally appeared on their website).
Happy first Sock Sunday of October! I’m kicking off my October reads with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. My Octobers are always spent reading creepy books, and this one seemed appropriate given the young, floating girl on the cover.
It’s been a few months since I’ve blogged, but being an adult is hard work and very time consuming. Especially during the summer when all you want to do is sit in the park and read, or sit in your backyard and read, or sit on the beach and read… you get the idea.
But, I’m back at it! I promise. For real.
