About meI'm the associate manager of circulation at a public library in the Chicago suburbs and am working towards my MLIS with the aim of ultimately becoming an academic or public librarian. I also taught English and history for seven years and have worked in other public and academic libraries for many years.
About my libraryMost of my physical books (those under the "Your Library" collection) were found at resale shops, library sales, and used book stores. I do preorder the new releases of a handful of authors, though. I've also started picking up more e-books and audiobooks, but I keep those in separate collections.
