All Checked Out – February 18th, 2019

Welcome to “All Checked Out,” where I share books I’ve borrowed from my local library (aka where I work).

So for those who are not aware, I am a Library Services Associate with a local library system in Ontario. A lot of my work entails technology requests, reader’s advisory, research, committee work, baby wrangler, and performing programming duties at our branch. I LOVE my job. Words cannot describe how much I love what I do for a living and the job I feel when I help patrons with any kind of request. I also work with some amazing men and women who constantly inspire me to be better every day. Library is intense and rewarding.

I thought it would be fun to once in awhile when I have a stack of library materials to show off what I’ve got in my reading queue. Here’s the first one for the year. 🙂

Here’s what I have on the stack:

I am currently reading “On the Come Up” which I am enjoying very much. Not sure if I love it as much as The Hate U Give, but I am trying to remind myself this is a very different story. Bri is wonderful and I adore her.

Have you read any of these? Comment down below and let me know if any of these are not worth my time and which ones I should prioritize. 🙂

    Ooh, beautiful library haul! Also, I’m so glad you love your job as a Library Services Associate. That’s amazing!! Did you have to get a Master’s Degree for that? I know here in the US you need a Master’s in Library Science. Either way, how exciting!

      Hi! I sadly do not have my MLIS, but I do have a LIT diploma (Library and Information Technician), which certifies me for my job (Not sure if there is a US equivalent, but I believe there is!). It’s a step down from Librarian (basically without the manager requirement)/ I have no desire to go into management, and I get to do a lot of things a Librarian does from research to reader’s advisory to collection’s maintenance… my job changes every single day based on the customers that come into our library! It’s a very rewarding job and I am super grateful that I get to go to work with a smile on my face every day.

      Thanks for commenting!
