i dont get offended at white people jokes even though im white because: 

  1. i can recognize white people as a whole have systemically oppressed POC in america, which is where i live 
  2. most people when they make white people jokes only mean the shitty white people and i am not a shitty white person 
  3. im not a pissbaby

my white friends that have reblogged this give me life

4. Sometimes I am a shitty white person and the jokes remind me to FUCKIN STOP

amandabees said: Do you have a good tag that I should follow for bedtime stories to read aloud to 6-8 year olds? My list currently includes Roald Dahl (generally), Harry Potter (the series), Jules Verne (Journey to the Center of the Earth), Little House on the Prairie (the series, which my parents read to me), Ramona Quimby.

Shoot—I honestly don’t know and don’t have the wherewithal at the moment to research read-aloud hashtags myself right now. 

TUMBLARIANS BAT-SIGNAL - PLEASE REBLOG

I don’t know any good hashtags but we’ve been putting the children’s librarians stuff in the YSTumblarian tag and anyone who posts in there would probably love being asked for recommendations. Let me know which ones were your favorites and I’ll gladly give you a list! Off the top of my head, Anything by Brian Jaques, Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman, the Keena Ford series by Melissa Thompson, anything by Grace Lin (esp Where the Mountain Meets the Moon or The Year of the Dog), anything by Andrew Clements (Frindle, No Talking, The Jacket, and The Janitor’s Boy are my personal favorites).

I could go on but if you have anything special you like (Horror? Try Always October by Bruce Coville! Sci Fi? Try Jacob Wonderbar and the Cosmic Space Kapow by Nathan Bransford!) then please Ask me and I’ll gladly give some more ideas.

Flipping through the TV stations last night I swear I heard some dude saying “we fought robo-warlocks!”  Brandon claims they said nothing of the sort.  I’m kinda sad because I so want to watch robo-warlocks taking down some dudebro with a smirk.

We’ve been discussing a beta fish for ages and today we took the plunge. Brandon is voting we name him Neil (after Armstrong) and nobody has any other ideas. He’s a half moon beta and we wanted a Lunar name. So pretty!

Anonymous said: Hey, I'm 15 and I'm considering being a public librarian. I'm not sure though, because over the past month or two I've been considering other careers I though I'd be good at, and later realizing they're not right for me. I want to have a plan, a set goal I can work towards, but I need to know what I want to be to do that. I love libraries, and I love reading (even though I haven't finished a book since April or so.) I don't know... I'm not passionate enough about anything to dedicate my life.

OH MY GOODNESS you are in for such a treat because you’re 15 and the world is your oyster! The beauty of public librarianship is that you can come at it from almost any angle. I have coworkers who majored in engineering, Spanish, Math, Business, English, Computer Science - I have coworkers who spent years abroad in Japan, England, Spain - all knowledge is helpful to being a librarian because we help people find knowledge, ya know? My coworker who used to be a knitting teacher? Now she does knitting programs for the library along with her other library stuff. My coworker who used to be an engineer helps put together the most amazing crafts you’ve ever seen. We have a librarian who specializes in Business, one who specializes in Early Literacy. We have reader’s advisory librarians who help people find good books to read and we have library workers who are amazing singers and bring that to their storytimes. It’s all helpful.

So if your plan is to become a librarian then learn everything that interests you. Learn it all! Find something that you’re passionate about and learn as much as you can get your hands on. After you’ve finished college if librarianship still feels right to you then go get your masters in Library and Information Sciences from an ALA accredited school and join us!

A bit of warning - currently the library world is very full of librarians with their degree who can’t find a job because the library world is in flux. I can’t tell you what will be going on in libraries in 10 years when you’ll be done with your degree and I don’t know how that will have changed but I promise you that libraries will still be around and we’ll still need passionate, dedicated people ready to spread information around like plum jam on a buttery scone.

OHMIGOSH, YOU GUYS

I was upstairs taking care of dishes and I came downstairs to help Pippa with her tooth brushing and she was PAINTING ON THE MIRROR IN THE BATHROOM WITH HER TOOTHPASTE AND TOOTHBRUSH.  So, I know that in a few days this will be hysterical.  I’m raising my own Ramona Quimby!  But right now?  I had to walk away because I was so angry and I don’t want to be a yelly parent.  Especially because her excuse was that “oops!  I forgot!”  OHMIGOSH WHAT DID YOU FORGET?  NOT TO PAINT ON THE BATHROOM MIRROR WITH TOOTHPASTE?  So.  Please, internet, laugh for me?  Because objectively I see the funny.  And I want someone else to for real see the funny.
