Best podcast I have ever

Best podcast I have ever heard!

I would disagree with the

I would disagree with the comment that children don't understand their motivations. I feel this is the same type of thinking that adults use to discredit children's ideas, thoughts, and feelings. The example of most adults who come into the library asking for items but not exactly sure what they want sometimes is actually the same experience we as librarians have with children most of the time. We have the same interactions with children; they are in need of something, but not exactly sure what. And other times they are exactly sure what. That is the only reason children approach the public service desk - they know what they want and why or at least why. If children didn't understand their motivations at all, didn't know why they wanted to learn something, why would they ever approach a public library service desk?

Nostalgia Book Club

I love the idea of a nostalgia book club! I am a librarian in Maine & want to start one at my library too!
