Published on Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Being a librarian means a lot of things, but what I appreciate about it the most is the idea that I am in the "book business." I know that is a stretch, but I like to think that I play a small part in the massive world of writing and publishing. Every time I am sent a book before it's published, every time I recommend a title to a patron, every time I write a book review, every time I participate in feedback sessions with publishers, I like to think that I am participating in the process of helping someone connect to someone else through the written and published word.
