kiss me, I work at the library

February is Library Lovers Month, at least in some states. Celebrate by.... I dunno, checking out some books?

There are many things I love about working at a library, chief among them that it is not remotely morally ambiguous. Especially my library, which is notably pro-privacy and anti-censorship. Okay, I'm not fond of the summer reading rewards program, but that's the worst I can say about it.

But today's Offical Favorite Part of Working at the Library is: I get to see kids checking books out. All kinds of books, awesome books, the books we love to talk about in the kidlitosphere. We hear so much horrible news about kids not reading, or boys not reading or girls only reading Gossip Girls books. Maybe not as many are reading as we would wish for... but reading is still going on.
