5 Librarian Blogs You Should Be Following

When I was younger, the people I most admired were librarians. They seemed like they knew everything in the entire universe. As I’ve gotten older, that hasn’t changed at all. While I may not get the chance to go to the library every day, checking in with these librarian bloggers gives me my library fix when I’m short on time.
