Ask me anything

Hi :) I am a 19 year old future librarian from Canada. My blog is filled with the typical libraries and books, but as well as my other passions, working out, yoga and clean eating. I also love the Kardashians, and post lots from my favourite movies and shows. I hope you find something that interests you on my blog <3

Promise yourself to look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. 🙏 -Christian D. Larson 

I’ve found myself in a bit of a funk recently; things are quiet… too quiet. I thrive when I’m busy and working toward something I’m passionate about. I’m not being challenged in the same ways and it’s time to push forward. It’s so easy to stagnate and lose sight of the bigger picture. Today, I ask you to push a little bit more toward making your optimism come true. That doesn’t mean it’ll be easy, hold to your path and dig deep to find what your optimism will be. 🙏  #yoga #asana #chinstand #yogafeedsamerica

On, Logging

iworkatapubliclibrary:

A patron asked for help on the computer she was using. She was trying to log on with her library card but instead of typing in the number, she’d inserted the library card into the floppy disk drive.

Minnesota: Land of 10,000 lakes and 1 floating library

There are lakes everywhere in Minnesota and now one of them has a floating library.

Thanks to Sarah Peters the contraption above is open for business on Cedar Lake in Minneapolis. Designed by Molly Reichert the 8 foot structure will hold upwards of 80 books for water travelers to peruse and check out.

Canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, skiffs, rowboats, or even inner tubes are invited to paddle up to the Library and browse the shelves from inside their watercraft. The library has both circulating and reference collections of artists’ books contributed by artists nationwide. A staff of friendly floating librarians facilitate the check out process and make reading suggestions

There are even drop off boxes on the shore to return the books.

About the project, Peters told the Minneapolis Star Tribune “Art books are not a widely known art form..And so there’s an element of delight and surprise. First of all, canoeing along and coming across a library. And then having it stocked with books that are totally unique. It’s like this double whammy of inventiveness. It can expand people’s ideas of what art is.”

True enough but it could also ruin a lot of those unique books. Granted one cannot enter the library but the confluence of books and water rarely ends well.

Perhaps a shore-based library by the landing dock could have achieved the goal of exposing people to the pleasures of book arts and artists books without  the high risk. But then again maybe the reward is in the risk.
