About meHmmm...depends on what day it is. ;-) To cover the basics: I'm the librarian for Kansas State Dept. of Transportation (see my Favorite Libraries below). I'm married and have two sons, ages 16 and 13. I'm originally from Massachusetts, received my BA in English from Smith College in 1995, and my MLS from University of Arizona in December 1997. I worked as a cataloger here in Topeka (my husband's hometown) for a little over a year after we got married and relocated here from Tucson. I liked the work, but not the situation - it was a private company, not a library. I finally became a "real" librarian when I started at KDOT in Sept. 2003.
About my libraryThe contents of my library owe a great debt to Clifton Fadiman and his "Lifetime Reading Plan." I have the third edition, and the "New" fourth edition which includes Eastern classics. I found the book in early spring 1995 at the Attleboro Public Library (back in my hometown in the year between Smith and Univ. of AZ) - that was the SECOND edition. Between that list and all the books I acquired as an English major at Smith, I've managed to collect a great many more classics than I've had time to read. But I do enjoy most of the classics I read, and will put in my LT catalog ONLY those books (literature or otherwise) that I plan to keep and still want to read someday.
