“I’m a children’s librarian.”
“Do you like books, working with children, or both?”
“Definitely both. I’ve always been a heavy reader. I’m interested in education, and I’ve always wanted to work with young people. Libraries are really vibrant community places. They are also among the few spaces left in the world that are truly free. And I think children’s libraries are some of the most exciting places in any decent city.”
“Do you think that today’s young people read less than previous generations because of all the technology in our lives, as we often hear?”
“People say that, but when you look at the statistics, it is 100 percent untrue. Young people read just as much, and often more, than young people in the past did. The same is true of adults. Reading has stayed the same or, in fact, gone up. Library use has increased enormously since the recession.”
Now, THIS is a Super Hero!

A childhood without books – that would be no childhood. That would be like being shut out from the enchanted place where you can go and find the rarest kind of joy.

Do you remember how we treat library books?
We hug them like they're our best friends!
