I'm so excited to find this group. It's much different being "alone" in a school with nobody to help with daily issues that pop up.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm a library assistant. I have a BA in English and Psychology and a Diploma in Public Relations & Media Studies. I don't have the energy to start studying again... but I would love to be a Teacher Librarian one day. I guess that is not going to happen if I'm not prepared to go out and do a couple more degrees, but I do want to immerse myself in learning how to be a 21st C librarian. This seems like just the community to get all the info I need to be better at what I do. Thanks folks!
