Today's Member of the Month is Marianne Reaves. Marianne works at Sollars Elementary School in Misawa AirBase Japan. She has been a school librarian for 33 years.
We asked Marianne some questions about her experience as a school librarian and we would like to share them with you.
What's your favorite thing about your job as a school librarian?
Reading to children, instilling a love of books and reading.
Name one children's book that you couldn't live without in your library.
Tell us why you decided to join the Elementary Librarian Community. What's your favorite thing about it?
I love that I can be confident in the plans and do the job as I know how to do it.
What's the biggest challenge you're currently facing when it comes to your school library?
If you could give one piece of advice to a brand new school librarian (or someone considering becoming a school librarian), what would it be?
Love Children and Books!
