Beautiful day for a neighbor #mrrogers #mrrogersneighborhood #funkopop
Such a great night! Mel Brooks doing stand-up was so, so funny. He told stories about all of his friends like Gene Wilder and Sid Caesar and talked all about coming up in comedy. I cannot exaggerate how funny he was! I also just so happened to be sitting in front of children’s and YA author Carol Snyder. We chatted before and after the show and realized we went to the same high school! Among other titles, Carol wrote the Ike and Mama young reader series, which focuses on the multiculturalism of the South Bronx in the early 1900s. Just librarianing it up wherever I go apparently #melbrooks #aneveningwithmelbrooks #childrensbooks #librarianlife #alwayslibrarianing

I now know one song besides happy birthday! Yes I’m in pajamas don’t you judge me #ukulele #learningukulele #youaremysunshine #librarian #childrenslibrarian
A while back I found an old ukulele at the library and finally decided to learn so I could incorporate it into library programming. After some practicing on the sad warped library ukulele I got my own today at the Uke Hut, an adorable store in Astoria just for ukuleles! #ukulele #learningukulele #ukehut #childrenslibrarian #librarianlife #librariesrock

We had a Spring magic show the other day at my branch and I was on fluffy bunny duty. It was tough but I got through it #toughjob #lifeishard #librarian #librarianlife
Sometimes you just need a little spa day, I was one of the earliest appts today at Great Jones Spa so I got the whole place to myself for a bit, can’t think of a better way to reward myself for finishing my thesis! #treatyoself #massage #nyc

Saw a wonderful play today called Feeding the Dragon about actor Sharon Washington’s life growing up in the apartment on the top floor of the St. Agnes Library, a branch of the NYPL. The play was full of funny moments, poignant moments, and little references to literature and NYC. My library also has one of these apartments! #libraries #feedingthedragon #offbroadway #nyc
