The Bookaneer Self Narrates!

As I mentioned in my last post, I found inspiration in a new friend recently to start blogging again. Brandon is the founder of Self Narrate, which is an incredible storytelling project. When he asked me if I wanted to do a video for the project, I said sure!…without really thinking about what I would talk about. What could my story be? But then, after some self-reflection (which is one of the main points of the project), I decided that I must talk about the library, how it has affected me, and how I want to use it to affect others. I got pretty emotional! But it was a great experience, and talking about my passion and then watching the resulting video really helped me realize how important The Bookaneer is to me.

So here it is! Please let me know what you think!

If you are interested in submitting a story for Self Narrate, you can contact Brandon here or join the Meetup group here. It’s a lot of fun, you’ll meet tons of new and awesome people, and learn a whole lot about yourself.

Big Changes for the Bookaneer

Ahoy, me hearties! As you may know, I’ve been gone for a very long time. (Almost a year!) I took a…piratical sabbatical, did some traveling, some working, and had some grand adventures (which I’ll catch you up on in an upcoming post). But I am back, rejuvenated, excited, and ready to go for the next long stretch of bookaneering! I’ve found some new inspiration in a new friend (see next post), and a BRAND NEW JOB! That’s right, I’m now the Youth Services Library Specialist at one of our library’s branches, and it’s really allowing me to stretch my creative wings and do some super cool things I hadn’t been able to do in my old position. Working with children is a dream come true, and it’s been so much fun getting settled into my new job. I have a truly excellent team, and I honestly feel like I’m making a difference in kids’ lives.

So come along with the Bookaneer into the next chapter of our journey! I’m so thrilled for what lies ahead. Next post: this weekend?! Believe it!

Keep bookaneering!
