Five Services Provided by Today’s Librarians in a Public Library

Not surprisingly, a library in operation today looks a lot different from a library operating 100 years ago. So, if you want to become a librarian, it’s best to know a little about the services provided by this professional in the 21st century. Look at five examples of services provided by today’s librarians.

Recommendation of Authors

A librarian recommends authors to people visiting the library. For example, a visitor may ask a librarian to recommend an author who writes suspenseful fiction, westerns or romance novels. A knowledgeable librarian will be able to recommend authors who are writing in various genres. Part of a librarian’s preparation for the job is to stay informed about authors working in many areas of the literary world and understanding the impact of books on people’s lives. In addition, it’s important for a librarian to be reading the latest novels as well as the classics to become a knowledgeable individual working in this profession.

Snow Days!

A winter storm arrived a few days ago and to the delight of many, we received several inches of snow strung out over a couple of days.  Snow is a lot of fun to play in and look at but not so fun to drive in. My husband had to stay home from work because the roads were a mess and we live up a hill that can be treacherous when there’s a mix of ice and snow upon it.

Christmas Eve Eve Eve Service

We go to a pretty big church so big in fact, that they had 5 Christmas Eve services. Since we had premade plans with my husband’s side of the family on Christmas Eve morning, we opted for the Christmas Eve Eve Eve service our church hosted on the Friday right before Christmas Day.

December 2017 Gift Knitting

We don’t often have much money to spare when it comes to store-bought gifts and gift cards and have always found handmade a bit more doable with a smaller dollar amount but a larger sacrifice of time.

Halloween Fun 2017

We had a fun Halloween this year. The weather was perfect for Trick-or-Treating. We kept to our budget by not spending on costumes but instead using what we already had.  The kids opted to paint their own pumpkins ( Melody painted a green Jumino from Stardew Valley & Owen’s a blue Kirby) instead of carving so they’ll last a bit longer. We can gut the pumpkins later and give to our chickens and they can turn that into eggs.

Mostly Wordless Wednesday: The Eclipse of 2017

“The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 was a total eclipse visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts”.- Wikipedia

We are sporting the Celestron ISO Certified, 2017 North American Total Solar Eclipse EclipSmart 2x Power Viewers Solar Observing Kit that I purchased from Amazon in June.I wanted to make sure I got the glasses before they sold out. I did research to make sure the glasses were legit too. I am so glad I did because there was a big recall on a bunch of different glasses that would not protect your eyes properly. I’m hoping everyone caught on to the recall! You have to be so careful when viewing an eclipse!
