Blog Profiles: Librarian Blogs
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, PR Newswire selects an industry or subject and a handful of sites that do a good job with promoting and contributing to the conversation. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet to us! Tell Blog Profiles writers Christine Cube, Mary Johnson, Savannah Tanbusch, and Stephanie Donovan why on @BeyondBylines.
Last week was National Library Week.
Librarians are trusted keepers of the Dewey Decimal System. And, they can silence a group of rebels with a simple “shhh.”
Here’s a look at four blogs that any bibliophile would love to read.
Justin is not only a librarian. He runs the Benson Memorial Library in Pennsylvania. He’s also a musician and is creating an arts and community center with his wife, Haley Hoenke. As if that’s not enough, he also writes his blog and freelances for other publications.

I always suspected that the librarians at my local library were up to shenanigans. In 2005, Jessy Randall, the curator of special collections at Colorado College, started sharing these stories.
It’s no longer a secret.

While not a library blog, Barbershop Books creates libraries in barbershops. The goal is to help boys become readers through the men in their community. The blog is a wealth of information for parents. Articles include diversity, education, and, of course, reading.
These posts caught my eye: The Charleston Shooting: Why White Kids Need Diverse Children’s Books and 8 Diverse Children’s Books to Read this Spring.
