I am a student at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, and I am taking online classes to get my masters in library and information science. I started graduate school in July 2012. I find this time-consuming and rewarding. I received my bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University. I graduated in May 2012 and I majored in history. I hail from a small farming community south of Chicago and currently live with my parents.
I started this blog for my youth service librarianship class but it has been evolving into so much more that I can use in my professional and personal life.
I have recently been interested in these topics in relation to libraries and librarianship:
- Innovative programs such as: Reading to Rover program, Mini golf at the library, How to draw comics
- Expanding library services beyond the normal boundaries
- Advocacy/ Outreach
- Electronic services
- The future of libraries and librarianship
- Intellectual freedom
I hope that readers enjoy my blog. Please feel free to provide feedback. Enjoy!
