Hello all! No, I'm not a librarian, but I wish I were! I actually work at a museum, but I have just started serving on our local Library Board. I love to read and worked in a bookstore for 3 years.

Actually, my dream job would be to run a second hand bookstore - as long as I didn't have to worry about the finances!

Hi I am new to SparkPeople but a professional yo-yo dieter. I have been in education for 26 years and in a library for 18yrs.OMG where did the time go? Currently I am in a Middle School library or an Elementary library in Progreso, Texas. My job assignment will change so I am just glad I have a job. I love summer so I can get healthy for the school year.

Hi! I've been on SparkPeople for two years, but I've finally gotten the rubber to meet the road and I'm rolling!

My name is Maggie, and I'm a 29 year old high school librarian in Florida. I just completed my 6th year teaching, they go so quickly! I got my MLS from the University of South Florida in 2008, and I am so glad to have a break from grad school. I hope to go back in a couple of years to get another MA and work toward becoming an academic librarian, but we'll see where life takes me.

I can't wait to get to know you all!

Hi. I just found you all. After I got my MLS almost 40 years ago, I worked as director of a small public library for several years. When both my children were in college, I left the library to work--much more $$--for a utility company where I eventually beame a technical analyst. I've been retired from there for almost 16 years.
I've done taxes and various other things during those years, but today I found a perfect volunteer job. In a LIBRARY! The library is part of an organization that provides transitional housing and training for homeless women.
Let's see. I live in northeast Ohio with my 2 cats.I have a pot--or should I say container--garden on my condo patio and hope to raise most of my summer veggies. My birthday is January 28, the day William Butler Yeats died.

Hi all! My name is Rachael and I work for a library in the thumb of Michigan. I am the branch story hour leader and also the librarian at our northern most (read "rural") branch. I just got my MLS in December and started full time this week.

I'm 25, dating a 22 year old rockabilly musician, and am currently living with my parents again. We are winners! Ha, ha. I enjoy reading (surprise), lists, and hanging out with friends and going out to see my boyfriend's gigs. I also dig cemeteries, and it's almost that season out here!

Last year I lost 15 lbs while I was living with my ex and directly after the break up. (Heartache makes food not so yummy.) However, since moving home and finding a boy who loves to feed me, I've put 10 back on. I'm jsut looking to get myself back under control and on track.

Looking forward to losing with you!

I am a former elementary librarian. I taught 1st grade for 13 years, then a librarian for 8 years and am now in my 4th year as an elementary principal. I know...I'm crazy! Believe me sometimes I think, "Boy, the library sure was a lot more quiet than the office!" For sure, a lot less stressful. Anyway, I hope you will let me participate in your librarian group. I miss hanging out with librarians! They are great people!

My name is Shauna. I am in my second year as a library technician at a high school library in Prince Albert, SK. I was so lucky to get this job!

When my kids were both in school and I was approaching 40 I decided it was time for a real career. Libraries have always been one of my favorite places in the world and since I already had a BA in English it was an easy decision. But I was torn: Should I go through a masters program, get an education degree, or take a 2 year tech program.

Thank goodness I chose well with door number 3! In my tech course I fell in love with school libraries. I finished my course, did some subbing and lo & behold our school board revamped the library system. Very few teacher librarians, no more clerks, just library technicians to do everything from circulation to processing to information work to acquisitions.

I love my job. So much variety -- and I love working with teenagers. They are a lot less scary than many of you would think.

Hopefully Spark People will help me to look less like a stereotypical librarian!

Hello!!!!
I'm a hospital librarian in Wisconsin for Mayo Health System. I love what I do. I have a 2.5 hour commute daily, which is the tricky part for fitting exercise in.

I graduated with my MLS in 2001 from Emporia State in KS and actually don't read all that much, because I don't have time. If I had time, I would read about mutlisport events and wellness, self-helpy sorts of stuff.

I have a 7 year old daughter and would rather make sure that she has reading materials than I do.

P.S. and I don't follow directions well. Lol

Hi all -

I'm a high school librarian at a private school in L.A. Love my job - I work in the most beautiful small library and the kids are fun and amazing and make me laugh every day!

Before this job I was freelancing and working at home.. the computer was in my kitchen.. big mistake!! Now I'm working on losing the 22 pounds I gained over 2 years to get back to my fightin' weight! 4 down, 18 to go!

Anyway, great to see some other smart, cool librarian folk here! Looking forward to making new internet friends.

LIBRARIANS RULE!

Hi everyone! I'm Kat, I'm 26, and I'm a grad student at Simmons in Boston, working on my MLIS and my certification to be a school librarian (elementary, preferably). I'll be done this summer, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a position for the 2010-11 school year, hopefully in Florida, so I can move down south with my sweetie (he's been waiting so patiently!).
My birthday is February 22, and I've already told the family that I want angel food cake with strawberries this year instead of the traditional German Chocolate monstrosity.
My biggest struggle right now is keeping on track while doing my practicum and taking classes and working; it's so much easier to stop at the Dunkin Donuts than to make dinner.

To eventually be able to wear size 8 pants again.

I am a librarian by experience rather than a schooled-librarian.

I am a Circulation Supervisor for over 20 years in Crystal River, Florida.

I am so busy with everything else that I haven't had time to read lately. It's usually an audio book while I'm working out.

I am not new to Sparkpeople, but new to the idea of actually STICKING WITH IT! Someone suggested I join some teams for support, so here I am. I am a middle school media specialist, though I think I would be happy as an academic librarian, public librarian or medical librarian, or almost any other library job! Life's too short to do all of them! I'm excited to see the Librarian Team!!

I am from Pocataligo, GA, 22 years old and happily married to the love of my life. I have a relationship with Jesus Christ and he is the reason for all the wonderful things in my life.I am currently studying at Emmanuel College to become an English or Language Arts Teacher. I also work two part time jobs. One as a Librarian and another looking after an elderly lady with Alzheimers. Look forward to joining each of you on your weight loss journey.

Hi!

I know how you feel - I would really like to lose 50 pounds, but for now I will happily settle for 30, and then see where it goes from there. I'm almost done with my MLIS as well, although I am already working as a children's librarian - it's wonderful!

Feel free to add me as a friend - I can really use the support!

Anything can be done - there is nothing to fear. Except clowns. Always fear clowns.

Hi all!

My name is Jenna and I'm 27 years old (June 6th), living in Jacksonville, FL. I'm in the last semester of my MLIS program at FSU, and just started my internship under the children's librarian at a branch of the St. John's Co. PL. I love working with kids and hope to find a job, somewhere (anywhere!), as a youth services librarian! Can you tell I'm open to relocating? Ha!

I would like to lose about 60 pounds altogether, but for now my goal is about 35. I just would like to be in better shape, and a confidence boost wouldn't hurt. I look forward to getting to know you all!

What? A librarian Team?

I'M SO EXCITED (Can you sense my thrill?)!!!!!

I'm Karin and I'm a school librarian (who also teaches 8th and 9th grade English).

I love my job, and I think librarians are one of the most under appreciated professions in the world. After all, without a librarian, how many of us would read (be at a book, newspaper, or whatever?).

I'm excited to have a Librarian Team!!!

A step aerobics instructor! Wow. I'm lucky to make it through just one class! . . . . Hmmm. Maybe there really is a connection between knitting and librarians. I find knitting is a type of meditation for me. I love it. Welcome to the team.

I'm (and have been forEVER!) the director of a small public library in eastern VA. If you read Library Journal Hotlines - Sept. 2008, mine is the library that held the bug banquet during our Summer Reading Program. And if you work in a library, ask me about our Adopt-a-Computer program! Boy has that been successful.

As director of a really small library I get to do it all, though I have great help from my staff. Also, everyone knows us and everyone thinks we have read every book in the library. It's cute if wrong.

Like a lot of librarians, I also knit - don't know what the connection is there - but a lot of us do. I have one grown son, three great dogs and a fabulous husband. I live on a farm that's been in the family for generations but neither of us are farmers. We rent it out to a cousin.

It took me forever to come up with some health & fitness goals but when I finally did I realized I'd like to be a step aerobics instructor and in 2010 I plan to start that process.

Believe it
Do it
Become it

My name is Lori, and I am the circulation clerk at Lubbock Christian University, in Lubbock, TX. I have been married 22 years do a dear man, have four adult children and one grandson. I'll be 51 on the 21st of February. I worked as the administrative assistant to the Dean of Graduate Studies for 11 years, but when I moved to the library, I FOUND MY NICHE! I absolutely love college kids (my two sons are also at this univ.), and I love the librarians I work with. I was pleasantly surprised today when someone alerted me to the following write-up about me in the school newspaper. Once again, I was called a librarian, but the other librarians were very gracious about it and we all just smiled a knowing smile at the huge difference! emoticon Here is the address (it will pretty much say it all!): http://www.thedustertoday.com/index.php?op

Hi everyone, I'm Suzanne. I'm currently not working in a library, though I have several applications out, and I had an interview yesterday (that I don't think went so well). I plan on getting my MLS through distance learning within the next 3 years or so. I live in the far Northwest suburbs of Chicago, almost to the Wisconsin border, and my birthday is July 23rd. I have a lot of weight to lose, and I really hope I can do it this time.

I work at township library in near Grand Rapids, MI. I did not take formal classes in library science so I am an assistant. I help get materials ready for programs for adults and I also help with some reference questions.

Hiyas!

I've been in librarianship 20+ years, as cataloguer, reference librarian, branch manager and currently work as disability and multicultural librarian.

I'm on the way to retraining as a mind-body therapist and naturopath, an area that's held my heart for a number of years. I enjoy the mental stimulation and variety that my job offers, but it's time to flex different muscles and work in a field which heals as much as it educates.

Other than that, I'm at the tail end of a journey which has seen me lose buckets of weight and replace it with wellness and balance :) Sparkpeople, and it's fine members and staff have been with me all the way!

cheers,

Moonscribe
