Confessions of a Librarian
There are people (some are littles, some are not) who think I read every book that comes into the library! I will confess three things …… 1. I don’t. I wish I had the time, but I don’t; 2. I do try to read every children’s book that we purchase. It’s nice to know what to recommend to the younger patrons; and 3. I truly am a Non-Fiction junkie. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good mystery or fabulous literature; but there’s always more to learn in Non-Fiction reads!!
I find myself heading towards the Non-Fiction stacks every day. Maybe working on my graduate degrees did it to me. I would check out my allotted 45 books every three weeks and read every one of them. They were all Non-Fiction: about the progressive era; about WWII; about The Holocaust; and about women’s history. Anything. Whether it’s “juvenile” non-fiction or “adult” non-fiction, I learn so much.
We have some great Non-Fiction here in the library, from easy readers, to juvenile, young adult and adult. Take some time to rediscover the magic of Non-Fiction. I’m really glad I did. ~~~~~ Miss Gayle
