Blatant Thievery of Blog Post
Friend and fellow librarian Jennie Cisna Mills, Director of the Shorewood-Troy Public Library District, posted to her blog yesterday about Librarian Myths. She brings up some of the persistent myths about librarians, particularly the one about getting to read all of the time at work. The opposite is more likely to be true. You wind up taking books home that aren't your choice, to prep for moderating a book discussion group or to keep up with professional journals. If you see a library staffer on Blogger or Facebook at the Plainfield Library, they are likely posting to one of our six very active blogs or responding to comments on the Library's Facebook page. Libraries do run more like small businesses than most people would think, and busy ones at that!
