Say it with me people: school libraries are not just about checking out books and accessing databases.
Libraries: Invest in your staff, your people-- they are the greatest resource you have in elevating your service to the community.

As a school librarian, I am beyond troubled by so much in this article: http://www.newsworks.org/index.php/local/item/66919-philly-starts-handing-out-library-cards-to-students-who-didnt-request-them?linktype=dst_share …
Enjoyed a few giggles as we laughed and sang a few lines of the Sonny and Cher classic, a song I would not expect from her, lol.

Even sadder? Library admin who do not know the first damn thing about any kind of literacy making decisions that perpetuate inequity.

Ok, pain meds, do your thing for Mom. Also playing her some ambient noise to try and help her relax. Silver lining: still no fever.
Just made a student's day by helping him find a book of poetry by W. B. Yeats! Nice to start the day on that note.
Probably one of the most humbling moments was Mom crying tonight & telling me she was scared. Took all I had to stay calm & strong for her.
