A Short Rant

Dear adult library patrons:

Teens are patrons too. It is very rude to butt in on a librarian helping any patron, including teens. Their question is just as important as yours. Please learn to wait your turn.

Thank you,

An annoyed teen librarian

  1. I know, I am sick of being treated as if I do not matter. I am a living, breathing, human being and I deserve to be treated with the same respect as everybody else-as does everyone and every teen. Especially in a library; my safe place, one of my favorite in the world. Luckily, no one has ever talking condescendingly to me at my library, and I hope it remains that way. Thanks for sticking up for us. :)

  3. That's ridiculous. Teenagers are people too (I'm not a teen, but still).

    I think if teens are using the library they should absolutely be encouraged, not treated like dirt.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
