Giles at the Library??



So I'm way behind and missed out on Buffy when I was younger, so I'm catching up now and loving it. Today at the library, I totally saw a guy who looked like Giles and I wanted to run up to him and start talking and telling him he's like the coolest librarian, but had to stop myself. So I admired Giles-look alike from afar and was reminded that I need to watch Buffy when I get off work tonight!:)

  4. That is very cool! You have more self control than me, I don't think I could have resisted telling him!

    Hope you're enjoying the wonder that is Buffy :)

  5. Giles was one of my favorite parts of that show. After the 4th or 5th session (forget which), the series lost its appeal for me, but it's still one of those guilty pleasures. shhh. ;)

  7. Giles look-a-like? Wish I could've been there :( I would've admired him from afar too hehe
    I LOOOOVE Buffy I'm trying sooo hard to get one of my friends to watch it but she won't :( She honestly believes it's sucky. She's only seen a few episodes. You have no idea how infuriating it is to hear that :( If she just gave it a shot she'd realize her folly hehe

  8. OMG- I just posted about how I started watching Buffy this week! We are like psychically connected!
    I love Giles!! And how beautiful is the library on that show? My high school library looked like it was under a rock since 1962.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
