It’s a big world with an awful lot of books in it. How are we to know what might be worth reading, what might be a good match for each of us as readers? Where do we look? Who do we ask?
This, to my mind, is the bottom line of librarianship: librarians are matchmakers, who are here to help books and readers find each other. It’s an important function, more difficult that one might imagine, not having tried to do it, and a delightful challenge to those of us who love books, and love to see them find their way into the right hands.
That is what I hope to do here.
This blog is being created as part of an assignment for the final course leading to my school library degree. The assignment is in accordance with CSLA’s School Library Learning 2.0 program. After the assignment ends, however, I intend to continue posting about books, resources, librarianship, and more.
