Couldn’t get enough of me?
Here’s my extra long super awesome really informative bio:
I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words Bother me. ~Winnie the Pooh
I love books; especially children and YA books. I have a BS in English Writing, a post baccalaureate certificate in Elementary Education, and a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science. I am a certified elementary teacher and a certified library media specialist.
What makes me an unconventional librarian? Well, I look at books from a multicultural perspective. Books need to represent our society: African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, etc. I feel that many popular books still ignore these populations.
An Unconventional Librarian is not only a curator of multicultural resources but I blog, I party, I write, I model, and do basically anything that your traditional librarian doesn’t do; including work at a library. I currently work in an independent book store! Being a librarian focuses on helping people find information. We provide a service to our community. My community happens to be the internet and the world.
Three things you will always find me with are: a cuppa coffee, a book, and my iPhone for using Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. I love social media and I love to share and stay connected. I am an information specialist, maven, connector. Locally I connect with other smart social media minded women through Philly Social Media Moms and Girls Lunch Out.
I am building a Harry Potter collection to enter the record books and I think being a little silly never hurts.
Building pluralism one book at a time.
As of January 2013, my focus will be YA and children’s books.
