In this episode of the Growing Readers Podcast, I talk with author and children’s librarian Lydia M. Sigwarth about her debut picture book Dear Librarian.
Michelle Knudsen discusses how she finds the right balance between humor and horror in the EVIL LIBRARIAN series.
Cindy Cardona is the Tween Librarian at the South Brunswick Public Library, in South Brunswick, NJ. She spends most of her time trying to figure out how to incorporate food into her library programs, trying to make the Children’s Department a little more colorful, and fighting the good fight to convince people that audiobooks are real books too!
Cassie is a Youth Services librarian at a public library in southern New Jersey. She adores her home state and is thrilled to serve its residents through both traditional and innovative programming and collections. Her favorite dewey range is 500-699.999 and you can find her tweeting occasionally at @CassieLovesNJ.
Jessica Lee is a teacher librarian at Willard Middle School in Berkeley, California. She has also been an English teacher, a public librarian, and a waitress, but her favorite terrible-teen job was selling snacks at Six Flags Magic Mountain. She is the mom of two boys who are also students at her school, fully integrating the work-life experience.
Dana Skwirut is a Youth Services librarian at the Fanwood Memorial Library in Fanwood, NJ, and the Summit Free Public Library in Summit, NJ. She is active in the Tumblarian community and on Twitter, where her sass got her featured in School Library Journal. When she isn’t in Ice Cream story time, she is seeing the world, one tiny road trip at a time.
Cory Eckert is the manager of Youth Services of the Children’s Branch at the Octavia Fellin Public Library in Gallup, NM and the idea-girl behind Guerrilla Storytime. And, like dragons, Cory loves tacos.
After fighting illiteracy as a teacher, reading coach, intervention specialist, and professional development writer (and obtaining my MLS for kicks in the process), I decided to try my hand at the pre-curricular/extracurricular opportunities for kids that the library provides.
The amazing Amy Cheney currently works at Write to Read – Juvenile Justice Center and has an amazing blog. We know you’ll enjoy this moving interview and the wonderful book suggestions. We sure did!
Lisa Taylor is a “shelf-employed” children’s librarian whom you can find amidst the shelves of a public library. This fabulous blogging librarian is well and truly tapped into the wonderful world of children’s literature. Nothing makes her happier than placing the right book in the right hands at the right time.
