2015 Reflections

2015 Reflections
Posted December 31, 2015 / Personal Reflections, Professional Learning

  How do you sum up 2015 in one word? I have been trying to choose a word and I am at a loss. So I will choose a couple of words instead. 2015 held for me a lot of busyness, a lot of stress, a lot of change, a lot of reflection, and a lot of accomplishment. Accomplishment. In 2015, I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Masters of Library and Information […]

2015 Best On Screen

2015 Best On Screen
Posted December 30, 2015 / Movies & TV & Music

  2015 was a very busy and life-changing year for me, and I think that is why my reading habits changed. But this year also changed my watching habits, because after spending hours reading grad school research articles or working a 10 hour day, most of the time I wanted to spend my evenings watching a movie. This year I have watched 180 movies, which is just CRAZY! (I use Letterboxd, or Goodreads for movies, […]

2015 Best Listens

2015 Best Listens
Posted December 29, 2015 / Books & Reading

  I get to experience many more books throughout the year because I incorporate audiobooks into my reading life. Audiobooks allow me read during the times that I would not otherwise be able to, like when I am driving to work or cleaning the house or getting ready in the morning. I love the experience of listening to a book being read aloud–a good audio performance adds such depth to the text. This year I […]

2015 Best Comic Reads

2015 Best Comic Reads
Posted December 27, 2015 / Books & Reading

  For me, 2015 was a year of comic reading! I jumped in to the world of comic books with full-force and have discovered just how much I love them! The art of a comic series allows for a story and its characters to develop in a way that other mediums cannot. They are beautiful and wonderful and super fun! So I wanted to highlight some of my most favorite comic discoveries this year! I […]

2015 Best Reads of the Year

2015 Best Reads of the Year
Posted December 26, 2015 / Books & Reading

  2015 was a strange reading year for me. I feel that I did not physically read nearly as many books as I normally do, especially in the second half of the year. I just focused a lot more on comics and television. That being said, I still feel that there were some great books that I read but didn’t get a chance to write a post about them. So I am summarizing my best reads […]

Listen To This: My Ultimate Christmas Playlist

Listen To This: My Ultimate Christmas Playlist
Posted December 17, 2015 / Movies & TV & Music

  Listen To This is a [potentially] new feature at A Librarian’s Library where I share some good listens with you. This is the last week of school for the semester, and I had a massive To Do list that I wanted to accomplish in the library. So I decided to close the library for the majority of the week so I could focus on the inventory and genrefying that I needed to do. I […]
