Librarians Speak Out: #lovemylibraryjob

You posted. You tweeted. You “tumbled.” And we are grateful for it! For more than a week, School Library Journal readers and staffers alike have been enjoying the feedback to our #lovemylibraryjob crowdsourcing project on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr, which we launched in honor of our 2013 Job Satisfaction Survey. Children’s and young adult librarians shared with us the favorite parts of their profession and the real-life fun going on in their libraries.

Here are some of our favorite comments.
