These days, I work in a library branch where there are fewer patrons who don’t speak English… but today I had a Spanish-speaking patron looking for a particular book that the library doesn’t have… Here is the conversation we had… After the conversation below, I led him to the appropriate section in the foreign language collection, and he found a book with a different title but similar topic.
Okay, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to post this on my blog, as it seemed a little ‘braggy’ to post this here. But then I thought, well, why not? After all, I am proud of this video (and the experiences and stories that led to it).
So, without further ado, here are some of my library stories in the form of a video celebrating not just Brooklyn Public Library, but really, libraries and librarians everywhere! And of course Judy Blume, for writing Iggy’s House, that wonderful book! As I say to friends, this is really my favorite career I’ve ever had!
For directions on how to make these, go to hazregalos‘s YouTube video, Tarjeta Pop-Up Flor de Loto – DIY – Lotus Flower Pop-Up Card. Note: The voiceover is in Spanish, so knowing at least a little Spanish helps, but the demo is well done and easy to follow too.
