Ingrid Henny Abrams is 3/4 children’s librarian, 1/4 YA/teen librarian, Speaker/Panelist for hire, mediocre crafter, and wearer of ridiculously cheerful clothing.
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. I’m Director-at-Large of ALA’s GLBT Round Table and a proud former 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. I am one of the few and proud administrators of Librarian Wardrobe. And before that? I did serious time as a:
- Childcare Worker (Professional Diaper Changer)
- Mommy and Me instructor
- Children’s Theatre Instructor/Director/Wrangler
Want to know more? OK, stalker. You can read about me at Slate, Librarian Wardrobe, YA Librarian Tales, American Libraries Magazine, GLBT News, Library Joy, Save NYC Libraries, and Dressed Her Days Vintage.
♥ 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?
