Ingrid Henny Abrams is 3/4 children’s librarian, 1/4 YA/teen librarian, library advocate, mediocre crafter, and wearer of ridiculously cheerful clothing.
Here’s some stuff that I like talking about:
♥ Badass librarians ♥ Glitter ♥ Sequins ♥ Makeup ♥ Thrifting ♥ Supporting Local Businesses ♥ NYC ♥ Kitsch ♥ Fairy tales ♥ Kittehs ♥ LGBTQ Rights ♥ Comics/Graphic Novels ♥ DIY/Crafting ♥ Library Advocacy ♥ Francesca Lia Block, the major girl crush of my life ♥ Kids, as in working with them but definitely not having them ♥ Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland ♥
Serious Bio Time: I have been a public children’s librarian in NYC since 2008. Before that, I was a librarian at one of the United States’ last few private, subscription libraries. I am one of the American Library Association’s Emerging Leaders of 2012, as well as a founding member of Urban Librarians Unite, which exists to fight library budget cuts in NYC. I’m Director-at-Large of ALA’s LGBT Round Table and a member of the Rainbow Book Project Committee (February 1, 2013, to January 31, 2015). Along with Natalie Binder, I am a co-creator of Libraries Changed My Life. And before that? I did serious time as a:
- Childcare Worker (Professional Diaper Changer)
- Mommy and Me instructor
- Children’s Theatre Instructor/Director/Wrangler
♥ Oh hey, it should be said that my opinions and thoughts do not necessarily reflect those of my employer.
♥ Though I am a children’s librarian, my blog may or may not be suitable for kids to read. Go read them a nice book, instead. Or wouldn’t a nice walk in the park be nice?
