We are librarians and faculty members from the University of the Philippines School of Library and Information Studies, and this is after performing in Hagikhikan (LaughFest). Hagikhikan is a variety show where faculty members from my University let out their hidden talents and perform for the public. This year, all proceeds of the show were donated to survivors of Typhoon Haiyan.

Hi! My name is Mary Flamino and I’m a Youth Services Librarian at Teton County Library in Jackson, Wyoming (tclib.org). I love the collection development aspect of my job. Some collections I select materials for are kid’s DVDs, juvenile fiction, and my personal favorite, picture books! This is a photo of me at a music festival at the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington.

“Meet Sandra Novacek, a suburban Detroit librarian … and resistance fighter. Yes, resistance fighter. Now, Sandra would be the first to say that she is not the hero of this story. That title would rightly belong to her late husband, Charles Novacek, who spent his youth fighting Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia then, later, Soviet oppression during the Cold War. This is the subject of the book written by Charles and published posthumously by Sandra, Border Crossings: Coming of Age in the Czech Resistance. But when Charles passed away in 1997, it was Sandra who picked up the fight to have this work published, resisting the procrastination of big publishers, to have his story heard. And, as Sandra explains in this interview with ForeWord This Week, she fought with the brains and resourcefulness of a librarian, the fierceness of an independent publisher, and the heart and soul of a warrior.”

Hi! My name’s Andy, and I work at a medium-sized public library in western Colorado. I work in our Technology Services Department but do a bit of everything, from delivering books through our Words on Wheels program to assisting with programming to staffing the public computer area information desk. My degree is actually in French Horn Performance, so when I’m not at work I perform with the local symphony. I also love to be outdoors, and my picture is from Land’s End on the Grand Mesa, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, and only an hour from my library’s front door!
I have been a public librarian since 2002. I started out as a part time library clerk and just started (9 days ago) as Shared Branch Manager at two very small town libraries (Population: 800). My wife and I got legally married in Iowa in 2010, a fact that I do not share with many patrons. Why? Because I live in the great State of Oklahoma. Besides being a book lover, I love hanging out with my wife, our children, and our friends and family, cooking, shopping, creating and watching tv and listening to music. I love being a librarian as I am constantly surrounded by thousands and thousands of books… information just waiting to be absorbed.
This is our Miss Cindy from the Gillett Public Library kissing a pig at our Oconto County fair last night just before the pig wrestling event…she’s wearing her “Captain Underpants” outfit for the occasion. This is what our summer reading program kids voted for her to do this year. We love our Miss Cindy!
