Who we are
is the kind of person who always reads too many books at one time, and will get overly caffeinated and forget when to quit talking. She likes glittery office supplies, [fancy] shoes [but only for a bargain], and changes her favorite animal often. Right now it’s
hedgehogs sharks tiny ponies. She has above-average knife skills for a home cook, gardens with great violence, and thrives on hosting complicated theme parties. For her birthday last year people gave Dani three books which, in a Venn Diagram, all fit into the categories of baked goods, booze, and entertaining.
is the kind of person who always knows a guy who knows a guy, has 45 different business ideas percolating (and speaking of percolating, is probably also making a pot of coffee for Dani because she is thoughtful that way), and has the endearing trait of being amazingly ignorant of famous things. She likes thrift stores, tech, soup & salad, and the music of Iron & Wine. Jess has superhero-level skills at catching things in mid-air. She is a world-class community builder, changing lives one neighborhood, one small group, one classroom at a time. Her personality type/favorite animal/Patronus is a beaver.
What we do
We’re a website for librarians, mostly. We value innovation, collaboration, and productivity. We write about those things, plus education, technology, and librarianship. We try to make logical connections between ideas in those areas. This website is the spot we’ve set aside to write whatever we want and do whatever we want. It has changed a lot since we first had the idea for it, and that’s a really good thing because our dreams and goals have become much clearer in that time as well.
On this website, we’ll show you things we love and think you’ll love, too. We’ll tell you about things when we’re pretty sure we’re right about them. We hope to do a good job.
