I am “Mrs. Mac,” a School 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. What goes around, comes around!
I am actively involved with the American Library Association (ALA), the Children and Young Adult Services Committee (CAYASC) of The National Association to Promote Library & Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish Speaking (REFORMA), YALSA (the Young Adult Library Services Association), REFORMA de Florida, and the American Association of School Librarians (AASL).
I am very proud to have been selected as an ALA Spectrum Scholar in 2007, and to have been selected to give the graduation speech at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) ceremony held at Simmons College in Boston 2008. Go Sharks!
I love to read and review books, so put those loves together when I created this blog back in 2012. I’d like to give a “shout out” and “thank you” to the publishers who regularly send me ARC’s (Advanced Reading Copies) in hard copy or ebook version in return for an honest review. It’s always fun meeting them at ALA’s National Conferences, and seeing those books on store shelves AFTER I’ve read them.
Have fun reading my reviews, and be sure to ask yourself “Should I Read it or Not?”
