Welcome to The Roaming Librarian.
Here you will discover some of my thoughts on Librarianship, Travel, Entertainment, Literature and Media, and more.
A Little About Me:
My professional life revolves around books. They are my biggest passion, what I love. Currently I work as a reference librarian at a public library in the Greater Boston Area; but in the past, I have worked as a bookseller, a library page, and as a public library’s children’s services department head. I interned for a small non-fiction publishing house’s publicity department (as an undergraduate student) and for an urban public library’s teen department. My objective is to work in the sector of public librarianship, but I’m not opposed to working at any library in general. While my favorite material remains in the children’s and young adult areas of the library, I love the written and spoken word and welcome any opportunity that allows me to follow my passion and pass on my knowledge and excitement to those I meet.
On a personal level, I’m a woman who loves travel; loves culture, art, and a variety of entertainments which I will discuss here on my site. Please forgive the moments when I wax poetic or ‘squee’ like a fangirl over my favorite topics. (Or better yet, join in!) I come from a fairly large, crazy, dramatic Irish-American family and I adore them, even when they drive me nuts. Feel free to blame any boisterous, wacky, or outlandish behaviors and comments from me on them.
I’d like to try to keep this website fairly positive, so if you have negative thoughts about my posts or the comments people leave, please try to be kind and constructive. Everyone in the world is entitled to their own opinions; please try to keep that in mind before you post something negative or nasty. I reserve the right to remove any comments that I determine to be inappropriate.
