YO WHATTUP NEW FRIEND! I love that you love it. Also, thanks for being a librarian. I love libraries. FREE BOOKS!
“ Librarians’ values are as sound as Girl Scouts’: truth, free speech, and universal literacy. And, like Scouts, they possess a quality that I think makes librarians invaluable and indispensable: they want to help. They want to help us. They want to be of service. And they’re not trying to sell us anything. ”

I’ve heard from a couple people that working in a public library is less stressful than academic. Anyone care to weigh in?
It depends on your personality, I think. Academic is more stressful in that you have a lot more administrative duties, as well as potentially publishing and other things that come with being someone that straddles a staff and faculty position. Public libraries, you’re responsible to the town or city, as well as a much wider variety of patrons, often with a significantly more limited budget.

I’m especially pleased with this border, though the whole piece makes me happy. I’m debating putting it in the kitchen.
