Welcome to Children's Librarianship in the Show Me State!
My name is Amy, and at the end of the summer of 2011, I landed my first professional librarian job and moved from Indiana to Missouri. In the seven months that I've been the children's librarian at my mid-size branch library, I've gotten to read some fantastic books; meet some inspiring young readers; network and swap ideas with colleagues; and offer some tremendous programs for children of all ages. Now that I've gotten into the basic rhythm of everything my job entails, I figure it's time I start sharing my adventures in reading, programming, and advocating for young people.
These are the voyages of a children's librarian in the Show Me State.
