About Me

“Children want the same things we want: to laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted.” Dr. Seuss

This quote actually is a pretty good summary of what my job is, to share books and activities that inspire children to learn, laugh, and listen to the stories in the world around us. Most days I really love my job, especially the parts where I get to spend with kids, or in putting together programs, or even reading, reviewing, and purchasing books I hope will engage them and assist them in their quest to discover. As a Youth Services Librarian in a small branch library, this isn’t all I do, but it is my favorite part.

I’ve also found, that my furry four legged friends want similar things, to play, to learn, to have treats, and to discover the world around them. When I moved out here to take this job, I adopted an adorable fluffy black poodle mix, she was joined about a half year latter by a grumpy brown dog of indeterminate age and breed. Recently the old brown dog, Oscar, adopted a cat.

  1. As you may know, April is National Poetry Month! Here at LitWorld we strongly believe in Words Changing Worlds, so we are celebrating Poetry Month by creating a Global Poem for Change, an expansive poem that will go down in history: a poem with contributors from all over the world!

    Since you are a influential blogger in the education and literary fields, we hope that you will help spread the word about our Poetry Month campaign by posting on your blog and your social media outlets. We so appreciate the work you do to advocate for the power of words, let’s join together and inspire others to take action with their voices this April (and beyond!)…

    I’ve taken the liberty to compose a sample blog below, along with some helpful links. I’ve included the link to our 30-second announcement video that we’d love for you to include in your blog post as well. Thank you so much in advance, we look forward to celebrating the Power of Poetry with you this month!

    The wonderful poet Naomi Shihab Nye got us started with a first line:

    I send my words out into the air, listening for yours from everywhere.

    What words do you send out into the air?

    What words do you listen for?

    Celebrate Poetry Month and create a Global Poem for Change with LitWorld!
