New ‘interactive’ display I made for our young adult section at library.

Love! I’m gonna try this in my branch.

Amazing and an awesome first tweet!

Like this idea.

Was told by two people (one student/one teacher) that they loved the books I recommended. YAYAYA!

  • Child (small male child): I don't like your outfit today Ms. L.
  • Me: (gee thanks)
  • Child: You look like a real librarian today Ms. L. You looked beautiful yesterday. You should change before lunch.
