Blogs I Read - Feel-Good Librarian

When I decided to be a librarian, I remembered all the great libriarians that I knew as a kid. There was the one in Dallas Public, who retrieved endless periodicals for me, for specialized school projects. There were the ones at my school, Greenhill, who let me work in the Library during my free periods, and who even laminated the dog-eared dust cover for my copy of the Silmarillion...

Well, now I manage a law firm library. We don't get a lot of opportunities to help bibliophile kids. I *do* enjoy my job, and I get a lot of satisfaction out of it. But I never quite get the same jolt of accomplishment as the Feel Good Librarian: http://feelgoodlibrarian.typepad.com/feelgood_librarian/

The Feel Good Librarian should be required reading for every library school student in the world. And for everyone who thinks of libraries (and librarians) fondly.
