Happy Wednesday! Up on the blog, a few of my favorite links in library-land. Check it out!
Leah White (Reader Services Librarian at Northbrook Public Library) kindly shared this letter she wrote, nominating Michael Stephens for the Library Journal Teaching Award. Dr. Stephens is an Assistant Professor in the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University.
I think it’s pretty awesome of Leah to nominate her mentor, *and* to allow me to share it here. Now go and nominate someone you admire for an award! Or just say thank you! :)
