In 2013 I Resolve to Blog Again.

Happy New YearI am, at last, exactly what I want to be: a full time public librarian. As the Director of Innovative Family Services at the Fayetteville Free Library in NY I manage children’s and teens fiction and graphic novel collections, plan teen programs, oversee volunteers, and basically get to be very very cool all the time. So far, for my job I coached a First Lego League team who won an award at our very first competition, went to NY Comic Con, trained patrons on how to use our Makerbot 3D printer, and designed some amazing new programs for middle schoolers. In 2013 I will be presenting at my first professional conference, running the teen summer reading program, making decisions, rearranging spaces, and making some very good things happen.

As I am becoming comfortable in my role I’ll be using this blog to talk about my successes, failures, ideas, excitements, disappointments, and learning experiences. I will also be posting reviews for children’s and YA fiction and graphic novels.

So stay tuned for good times and general library geekery (because that is just how I roll).

I am a teen librarian. I am a learner of things and a doer of doings.
