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.

Every Day with Jesus 365 Devotions for Kids {Book Review}

Every Day with Jesus: 365 Devotions for Kids by Pastor Dr. Charles Stanley is his first ever devotional for children. It is adapted from his book Every Day in His Presence, Every Day with Jesus and is coordinated with his devotional for adults.

This coordination beautifully opens the door for conversation within the family unit. However, this book stands well on its own if you don’t have the one for adults.

Bad Lucky Goat, an affably quirky debut feature.” – The Hollywood Reporter
 “A genuine crowd-pleaser.” — Indiewire
Bad Lucky Goat is a movie I heard about and decided to check out.  We are goat fans in this house and a foreign movie about the adventures of two teens that revolved around a goat sounded like an amusing watch. I was pleased that I wasn’t wrong in that assumption.

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.
