I love being a librarian.  Just ask anyone around me and they will tell you that I love the variety of challenges and tasks on any given day. Being a librarian is so much more than sitting behind a desk and reading books.  While knowledge of current literature trends is important,  being accepting of new technologies, being a strong leader , empathetic and a good communicator are vital.  I like to set a good example for those around me by setting a strong example by my work ethic.carpet cleaningToday was no different.  I spot cleaned the  carpet behind the library counter.  In an attempt to rid the area of a toxic smell that was affecting an asthmatic employee, cleaning the soiled carpet  spot  fell to me.  Sadly,  I was cleaning an area of the carpet which is worn and thread bare.  However,  the spot cleaner is most ‘sucky’…..(insert Will Ferrell  ELF movie reference here.)  Hopefully, my efforts will make the situation better for my employees.

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to community. I love books, reading to my son,properly placed apostrophes,canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
