These are a few of my favorite things

I love dogs.
I love books.
I love love Dog Loves Books.

Dog enjoys books so much that he opens his very own bookstore. As business is slow, downhearted dog begins to read his wares. "When he read, he forgot that he was waiting. When he read, he forgot he was alone." Finishing one book, he chooses another and thus begins a new adventure.

As you can imagine, reading so many stories gives him excellent reader's advisory skills. Once customers start coming to his store, he gets to do his most favorite thing of all with books: share them!

Naturally the themes of Dog Loves Books made it the obvious choice to share during my goodbye party last week. And where exactly am I going?

I'm thrilled and honored to be the new Assistant Coordinator of Children's Services for Queens Library. I am completely excited to work with children's librarians in a new capacity and serve as a programming resource system-wide. One of my responsibilities this first week is to observe a library program for children on yoga-- which for anyone that personally knows me, knows that I find this beyond cool.

It will be curious to see if this change will have any effect on my blog. I hope to continue sharing ideas and inspiration in the form of books, activities, resources and more. If anything, now I will have even more library love to give... 63 to be exact!


  1. Congratulations on your promotion! I would love to hear more about the yoga program! I'd like to start a baby yoga program here pretty soon.

  2. Thank you Evan! I hope to post about it, but if for some reason I don't, get in touch and I'll send you more information. This particular session is for grades K - 2.

  3. Congratulations Sarah! Been reading your blog for a while now and am extra-excited about your new position. I do something similar here in pittsburgh for our 44 libraries and am eager to hear your ideas and experiences and thoughts. Yay!

  4. Thanks so much Kelley! Do you have a blog? It sounds like you would be a great resource and I hope our paths cross soon at conferences and such.
