Lovely Library Things

My name is Sarah. I’m a 25-year-old children’s librarian, and this is my tumblr!


While I mainly post about my programs, this is also a space for me to throw thoughts, pictures, and articles that have anything to do with libraries, books, education, etc.


Or, you know, just things that amuse, delight, and/or enrage me.

If you’ve got any questions, feel free to shoot me an ask. I’d love to hear from you!

I think you should learn, of course, and some days you must learn a great deal. But you should also have days when you allow what is already in you to swell up inside of you until it touches everything. And you can feel it inside of you. If you never take time out to let that happen, then you accumulate facts, and they begin to rattle around inside of you. You can make noise with them, but never really feel anything with them. It’s hollow.

I want my own books to have their own shelves,” you said, and that’s how I knew it would be okay to live together.
