We're two youth services librarians, one in Iowa (Liz) and one in Mississippi (Ally). We have both been helped so much by the professional community that we've found on twitter, listservs, and library blogs, so we wanted to join in on the discussion and the exchange of ideas.
We both plan and implement programs, order materials, and do outreach activities for our respective libraries. We serve very different communities, and this is a space where we will highlight what has (and sometimes has not) worked for us.
We'll also talk some about books. Because we love them. We love books for all ages, we love book events, we love book news, and we will talk about those things here.
We're thrilled to be a part of the librarian community. We look forward to talking with all of you!
