i quit

I recently did one of the scariest things that I have ever done in my life, I quit my job. Even at almost 26 years of age this is something that had never come up in my life before. All the jobs that I have had are ones with already defined end dates or I…

the best books i read this month – april 2019

This month I found myself reading on the bus again (after it being too dark all winter), getting books I have been waiting for for months showing up at the library for me, and some wonderful advanced books. I am going to switch things up a bit this month and share even more books, but…

what does a records coordinator do?

So many people ask what it is that I do all day and what exactly a records coordinator does and to be honest it is sometimes hard to define it quickly. In an essence I help organize all of the information that is created at Metro Vancouver; emails, reports, data, everything. I also help to…

what i learned in library school

Today is my graduation. Unfortunately I am not able to be there across the country for the ceremony, but whether I am there or not, I have my MLIS (Masters in Library and Information Science). Most people are very surprised when they hear that you have to have a Masters to become a librarian, but…

Another month (almost) gone, another batch of books read. Once again I read quite a few books this month and you can check out them all here, but here I will be talking about some of the best books I read this month. Some of them are brand new and others are a few years…

coming soon to a library near you

There are a lot of books coming out this year that I am excited for, demonstrated by my ever changing “Future Publications” Goodread’s shelf (currently having 31 books on at the time of writing, but who knows how it will change from day to day). I find out about these books in a variety of…

the best books I read this month – february 2018

The end of another month has come upon us and somehow we are 1/6 of the way through 2018! Where the heck has the time gone? While I feel like the month flew by I was still able to read a few awesome books that I think all of you should know about them. At…

freedom to read
