About me"When I get a little money, I buy books. And if there is any left over, I buy food." -- Deciderius Erasmus

That quote was painted on the wall of one of the many bookstores I've worked in over the span of about eight years. I found it ironic because most of the time my paycheck went right back into the store. My book collection grew larger and larger, but I became broker and broker.

I recently graduated and earned my BA in history and women's studies. In the Fall of 2015, I will begin my first semester of library school. I currently work in two academic libraries and hope to work in a public library as a youth services librarian someday.

About my libraryThis account is a birthday gift from a fellow book-loving friend. She has given me the excuse to spend more time with my books. (As if I needed one.)
