Help from any librarians that work circulation!
In one of my classes I need to have someone that works circulation at a library answer a few questions for me! If you‘re comfortable emailing me that would be great! I would also like to say you‘re not just doing my work for me, I have to write a paper about it!
No pressure, a few simple questions about your job! No personal info needed! (It‘s hard to get to my local library and I asked my cont ⬇️

Ash.on.the.line Librarian and she acted as if she didn‘t have the time for that! 😓 2mo
Ash.on.the.line I‘d really appreciate any help! Also so glad to have Litsy with so many lovely librarians available! 😊 2mo
KathyWheeler @Ash.on.the.line I‘m kind of surprised about that. I, and other librarians I know, always try to help library school students when we can. I don‘t work circ or I‘d answer your questions. If you ever have questions about reference, instruction, collection development, or cataloging (I have worked in this area, but it‘s been awhile), I‘d be happy to help. 2mo

Librarybelle I oversee a department that does circulation and reference work. We also went through a recent migration to a new circulation system, and I‘ve been the basic go to person for all circulation questions at my library system! I‘d be happy to answer questions - my email is my Litsy username AT gmail DOT com. 2mo
LibrarianRyan Sure. Missryanaf @ Gmail dot com 2mo
Ash.on.the.line @KathyWheeler thanks so much I‘ll keep you in mind! She has worked there a long while and has always been a bit on the rude side! My schedule didn‘t work for her so maybe that‘s why. 2mo
Ash.on.the.line @Librarybelle thank you so much! 😊 2mo
Ash.on.the.line @LibrarianRyan thank you so much! 😊 I‘ll be getting the email out today at some point! 2mo

Litsy friends, I need your help! I do not read a lot of non-fiction and I need suggestions for my work book club‘s next book. Hit me with your non-fiction recommendations, preferably written by women, and centering on women‘s issues, gender in the workplace, or leadership skill building. I‘ll even do a giveaway as a thank you (see comments). Thanks in advance!

DGRachel I will do a random drawing, one entry for each book suggested and mail a book from the winners wishlist. Open to anyone as long as Book Depository ships to you. 😘 Suggestions needed by 9:00 PM EDT Tuesday, June 18, 2019. Drawing will be held Wednesday. 5mo

DGRachel @Leftcoastzen That looks good! 5mo
DGRachel @Mitch No! I hadn‘t seen seen that article, thank you! That‘s a huge help. 5mo
tournevis Litsy is being finicky and won't let me tag it, but Mothers in Academia is good and in the database. 5mo
DGRachel @tournevis thank you! 5mo
dsfisher You might look at Beene Brown. 5mo
LeahBergen I read this other one by the same author and really enjoyed it. 5mo
LeahBergen Oh, and I‘ve heard great things about this one 5mo
DGRachel @LeahBergen I will definitely add those to my personal TBR, but my coworkers will kill me if I assign another 480+ page book! Most everyone is barely finishing The Huntress in time. 😆 5mo
DGRachel @LeahBergen Ooh, Women & Power does look good! (And bonus! It‘s short. 🤣🤣) 5mo
LeahBergen Baha! My book club is like that, too. We now look at font size and chapter length, too. 😆😆 5mo
DGRachel @Crazeedi It‘s on the list! Thank you 😊 5mo
Exbrarian It's a classic about emotional labor. 5mo
IndoorDame @Leftcoastzen i loved this one! My friends did a book group discussion on it that worked really well 5mo
Leftcoastzen @IndoorDame It is definitely among my best reads this year. 5mo
rretzler This was a very good book and very interesting. In 2006, Cathie Black was named one of Fortune‘s “50 Most Powerful Women in American Business” for the seventh consecutive year. She writes about women in the workplace and her experiences on how to get ahead. The audiobook was excellent. 5mo
DGRachel Thanks @rretzler 🤩 5mo
Amandajoy I haven‘t read this one, but it‘s one I‘ve been interested in since I keep hearing about it all over the Book Riot podcasts. 5mo
staci.reads Just read this in a book club with colleagues 5mo
Simona Thought provoking and perfect for discussion 5mo

Help a mama out! I don't read to my kids at bedtime as much in the summer bc they stay up later playing outside. But I still want to have something on hand when the opportunity arises. I thought short stories would be better than a novel since there might be gaps of time in between readings. If you or your kids have enjoyed any short story collections, please share them with me.

lover.of.the.classics Would you be okay with Sherlock Holmes? They are good. 5mo

Johanna414 These are some good ones I have in my library. 5mo
Aseleener @lover.of.the.classics I'm not sure how much my kids would get into that, but I'll look into it. Thanks. 5mo
Aseleener @Johanna414 Thank you! 5mo

Okay, so I haven't read a word in almost a month, my mental health has been the worst in two years (I'm better now), and I currently have the attention span of a gnat. Please, please recommend me SHORT, engaging books I can get lost in. Any genre will do except for YA. Thanks! 😊

Shamzi Born a crime by Trevor Noah, The Book Thief, The Orphan masters son, I am Mala or any book by Khaled Hoessini. I found these very soothing in stressful times. Hope you are getting better each day!!! 6mo
NeedsMoreBooks Can‘t find anything to recommend but hugs 🤗 🤗 6mo

Naj @NeedsMoreBooks 🤗🤗💜 6mo
DivineDiana I‘m thinking something funny and fast paced. 🤔 6mo
Naj @DivineDiana I hadn't heard of this and it honestly looks fun. Will check it out soon. Thanks 🤗 6mo
tpixie Hugs. If you like slapstick comedy and wacky characters 6mo
Naj @tpixie Thank you 🤗💕. That looks like something I might need right now. 6mo

Hi Friends! I know I‘ve been gone awhile, but I could use your help! I‘ve just accepted a job at our new junior high opening in the fall and have since been tasked to find books (YA Fiction or Nonfiction) to use cross-curricularly with Math and Science. Please drop some recs below!
#TeachersOfLitsy #ITeachMiddleSchool #NeedBookRecs

TheBookHippie I‘ll get back to you!!! With a list! 9mo
AndreaReads @TheBookHippie You‘re my favorite! Thank you for your help! 9mo
Readergrrl My friend is a science teacher and I am an English teacher. We worked on a unit tying germs/plagues, medical anthropology, etc. to Fever by Laurie Halse Anderson. 9mo

Readergrrl Also Frankenstein! Such a great tie-in to current medical/ethical practices. Perhaps better for higher level readers as the language can be dense. 9mo
Readergrrl And don‘t laugh, but zombielit such as Raising Stony Mayhall might bring up some great conversations about epidemics and even evolution. 9mo
AndreaReads @Readergrrl I love your suggestions! Thank you! @Pogue Thank you! That one is on my TBR; I‘ll have to move it up and check it out! 9mo
TheBookHippie @Readergrrl We used the graphic novel of Frankenstein !!! 9mo
emtobiasz A little out there, and it may not line up exactly with what you‘re looking for, but this NF book on technology, privacy, and surveillance could be a great conversation starter: 9mo
emtobiasz This may skew a little young, but this gave my homeschool book club great discussions: 9mo
emtobiasz Lots of puzzles, ciphers, and codes in 9mo
TheBookHippie It is a picture book but the story and history are so cool!!! 9mo
Christine Congrats on the new job! :) 9mo
julesG Congratulations on the job! 9mo
