I am a LIBRARIAN!!!!!!!

After 5 and a half long years I am finally a LIBRARIAN!!!! Part-time classes, late nights, lost weekends, research, web searches, books read for all ages and I am finally done. Despite what others think earning a Master's in Library and Information Science is no walk in the park. Lots and lots of research in and out of databases. I won't lie the classes for young adult and children's literature were pure fun. I will not miss writing papers at all. I guess that means I will never work in an academic library which is fine by me. I hope to one day work in a media center or public library with children. For now I am a stay at home librarian/mommy and I am loving every second of it.

I guess it is obvious that my daughter's book collection is pretty extensive for a 21 month old but thankfully she loves to be read too (especially right before bed every single night).

Libraries have always had a special place in my heart. Now to perfect my shushing voice!

Oh congratulations!!! Sounds like a hard job to me. I still can't figure out how to find the book I'm looking for at the library. I always have to ask the librarian for help.
Anyway, I followed you over here from Carrie's blog.
It's nice to meet you, now a new follower! I look forward to getting to know you better!

Congratulations! I have always wondered what it took to be a librarian. I adore books, but didn't have the best librarians growing up and never thought to pursue it.

(Thanks for visiting my blog earlier!) :)

Congratulations Katrina!

I also wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out about our event! As a fellow SPD Mom you know why my passion is so great to raise awareness and if it weren't for help from wonderful people like you, it wouldn't happen.

Thank you again, and in case things get crazy and I can't get back to you, wish your little one a very happy birthday!
