I am “Mrs. Mac,” a Librarian holding a BS and MS in Elementary Education, and an MLS in Library Science. I have been an Elementary teacher, as well as an Elementary, Middle and High School Librarian. I have also been a Technology Teacher, and a Substitute Teacher. I am now an Elementary School Librarian once again.
I am actively involved with the American Library Association (ALA), and the Children and Young Adult Services Committee (CAYASC) of The National Association to Promote Library & Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish Speaking (REFORMA). In addition I am a member of YALSA (the Young Adult Library Services Association), as well as REFORMA de Florida and the American Association of School Librarians (AASL). I am also a member of FAME (Florida Association for Media in Education.)
I am very proud to have been selected as an ALA Spectrum Scholar in 2007, and to have won the competition to give the graduating speech for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) Class of 2008 at Simmons College in Boston. Go Sharks!
I love to read and review books, so have put those loves together into this Blog.
I’d like to give a “shout out” and “thank you” to all the publishers who regularly send me ARC’s (Advanced Reading Copies) in either a hard copy or ebook version in return for an honest review. It is always fun getting to meet them at ALA’s National Conferences, and seeing the books on store shelves AFTER I’ve read them and BEFORE everyone else. You can get this same feeling by checking out ARC reviews on my blog.
Have fun reading my reviews, and be sure to ask yourself “Should I Read it or Not?”
