Hello. I'm your new Web Services Librarian at the Des Plaines Public Library. My name is Brodie and I'm pretty excited to be here. That's me in the lower left part of the picture walking with my son in Boulder, Colorado.
I started working in libraries during my senior year of college when I applied for a shelving position at the Boulder Public Library. I worked for several years in the reference department as well.
From there, my path to becoming a librarian was...winding...to say the least. I spent three years in a PhD program at Northwestern University, left school to work at the Newberry Library in Chicago, earned my library degree last December, and now I'm here.
I'll be tending to the website, contributing to this blog, watching the action on Twitter, and thinking of new ways to provide services for you on the web. I hope to see you "around" online and here in the library.
