I’m Back! Plus, some news.

I’m back after a week of radio silence! It wasn’t intentional; I was just enjoying a few days off and hanging out with my kids before the hectic new school year starts up.

 

I’ve got loads of books to talk about, and I want to get back into talking about programming, too. But first… I have a confession to make.

I received a promotion, and just passed my 6-month probation. I’m an assistant manager at my community library now, and we have a wonderful children’s librarian who’s inherited the room, and the kids. She’s a programming whiz, too, so the kids are having a ball over there, whether they’re learning Harry Potter coding or chasing bubbles at storytime.

I was terrified to write about my promotion, because for the longest time, I worried that no one would see me as a children’s librarian anymore. But I still love kidlit, and I am still passionate about children’s librarianship and early childhood literacy. Being at my small community library allows me the luxury of being able to still keep a toe in the children’s librarian world – the current children’s librarian knows I will gladly take on storytimes and class visits when she’s off – while still exploring this profession, and for that, I’m truly grateful. Plus, Carla Hayden started out as a children’s librarian, so if she has any advice for me, I’m listening!

Bottom line: I am still voraciously devouring kidlit and playing around with programming. I’ll always find a way to talk about children’s literacy and programming here, and nothing here at MomReadIt will change. Honest. I’m always going to be a children’s librarian at heart, because my heart is what led me to change careers and pursue children’s librarianship. Please stick around for more reviews and articles; I’d like to think that MomReadIt still has things to say.

With that… my manager got a big laugh out of this picture, so I’ll share with you, too.
