    Did you ever wonder, “What’s Bookman Doing Next?” Being the librarian at Dearborn Park International School is a dream job for me. I work hard to deliver the best of what school libraries can bring to each and every reader, students and adults.  I love everything about our library’s interaction with staff, classes and families. That does mean that sometimes I’m collaborating with others, either online through meetings or in face to face events that take me away from school.

     This year I feel fortunate to serve Washington State’s school, public, academic and special libraries as president of our Washington Library Association It’s extra work that brings benefits to our community. You can learn more http://wla.org or via my blog: http://bookmansbytes.blogspot.com
