Blogging

What I know about blogging can fit on a head of a needle. They say its suppose to be easy but i don’t think it is. I mean everytime I do something I’m always second guessing myself because I am not sure I’m doing it right. People who do this everyday have to have patience, that is just my opinion, like I said, I just don’t get it.

As a library paraprofessional in training, knowing this is important to me. For most people, libraries is just a place where you can get information you need and then leave. For me, it is a place where knowledge lives. “Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” Lemony Snicket said that, and being a book lover myself I happened to believe its true.

Libraries

Its a difficult job, but somebody got to do it.

The traditional definition is “a collection of books”. The ALA
Glossary of Library and Information Science (Heartsill Young (ed.)
Chicago: ALA, 1983) defines a library as:
“A collection of material organized to provide physical,
bibliographical, and intellectual access to a target group with a
staff that is trained to provide services and programs related to the
information needs of the target group”.

For those of us who still don’t get it, here is a clip to¬†explain, what is a blog. I hope it gets easier for you to understand. Good Luck.

I watched this clip and it made me think of the library I work in. Although we are setup to use some modern day technology, we can’t get access to it because of low funds, or so we are being told.

I work in a school library, and the children just don’t understand “No Eating in the Library”. If we can set this clip up to play over and over again, I believe it might make them understand how I feel when I have to tell them to stop eating. If only.
