I actually started this blog back in October of 2008 with a single short post. Professional duties shifted and it was almost two years later before I began to blog in earnest in August of 2010. I worked my way through an online program called School Library Learning 2.0.
Through my posts explaining websites and online tools, book recommendations, cover reveals and professional news gleaned from Twitter, I found my professional and personal connections growing with like-minded people. With every exchange, virtually or face to face, my passion, my lifelong dedication to service in the field of library science, expanded. Over the weeks, months and years I have felt myself improve as a writer, especially in expressing why a certain author, illustrator and their work needs to be shared with others.
We are living in a time when there is an abundance of wonderful books being written, illustrated and published. It has become an important part of my life to write these posts for you. It feels as though a day is not quite whole unless I talk about books, authors or illustrators at Librarian's Quest.
With that being said, over the next several weeks my blog posts will not be as regular. Xena and I are going on a new adventure. A dream decades in the making and further fueled by Kirby Larson's Hattie Big Sky is about to be realized. Nothing will be certain until late September but excitement is brewing. I hope all of you will be patient with my intermittent posting. I will also be a less frequent visitor on social media but I will be back as soon as I can to talk about all good things in the world of children's literature.
I wish you all the best each and every day,
