In which I gush over booky and library-ish and fashiony things and it’s Thursday.

  • A fifth grade girl came into wanting to do a report on an animal. OK. “I need a book on a pudu.” HUH? I tried to convince her to pick another animal, as we had no pudu-related books in the entire system. But then I saw a picture of it and immediately decided to opt for online databases. How could I refuse this face?
    As soon as I saw this, we both starting making squeaky baby coos.

  • Born Librarian‘s post about being selected for the Newbery Committee. Congrats!

OK, Kiddos! Check you soon. Get through the rest of this week in one piece, OK? Stay strong, librarians!
