My Super Crazy Week

My Super Crazy Week
Posted July 29, 2015 / Personal Reflections

   Confessions from the Library is a feature where I get a little personal and confess my thoughts and feelings. Or maybe I just discuss something that’s on my mind or happening in my life. This is the story of how my week went crazy! This past weekend was a planned Girls weekend with all my college buds. Since we all live all over the country, we had been planning this weekend for MONTHS! This […]

Books that Celebrate Diversity!

Books that Celebrate Diversity!
Posted July 20, 2015 / Books & Reading

  Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme create at The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Books that Celebrate Diversity! Celebrating diversity has been a huge focus in publishing as well as library collection development. Representing ALL readers is so incredibly important. Readers want to see themselves in books that they read (For a recent example, look at this I Work At A Public Library post). Readers NEED to see […]

This dystopia sucked me in immediately. From the very first page I was intrigued by the premise of this society run by women! This idea is something that we just don’t get much in YA, so […]

What I’m Watching (7): Top Picks in 2015 So Far
Posted July 2, 2015 / Movies & TV & Music

  What I’m Watching is a new feature here at A Librarian’s Library where I will spotlight what I have been watching recently. Whether it be Movies, Television, or Documentaries, this is a feature where I will feature what I have become obsessed with or what I just didn’t like at all! Television and Film is a major part of my life, too, and I just want them to be represented on my blog as […]

So You Want to Read Comics? A Series Introduction

So You Want to Read Comics? A Series Introduction
Posted July 1, 2015 / Books & Reading

  A couple of weeks ago, I saw a tweet from Laura (The Leading Librarian) saying that she was working on a post about comics. What a coincidence! I WAS TOO! Since we both love comics and were going to write up a post about our experiences, we decided we should work together on a blogging series that walks people through the process of getting started with comics and graphic novels. So we got together and […]
