I love what I do. The organization of knowledge has always been fun for me, and getting to do it on a daily basis is a blessing.
People may wonder what a librarian does all day, so let me list just a few of these things.
*Promote reading. Supply learners with print books, downloadable ebooks, and audiobooks.
*Act as information and search expert at AHS.
*Teach strategies for collecting and evaluating information.
*Teach that the library website is the portal for the best print and online resources available at AHS.
*Make sure learners and teachers can access all available online resources.
*Assist in the research process.
*Include and collaborate with learners.
*Work towards getting rich, digital content wherever students visit.
*Strive to provide a diverse, shared collection.
*Teach that the library is not just a place to get stuff, it's a place to make and collaborate, too.
*Teach everywhere, both inside and outside of the library.
*Fight for the rights of students to have and use the tools they need.
*Contribute to the development of a new branding for the location we call "library".
