Sno-Isle Library and Librarian Dawn Rutherford

Okay, these photos aren't exactly representative of the moment I'm speaking of, BUT they do show who I am referring to. And they rock.


I'm giving a shout out to the AMAZING Dawn Rutherford, Librarian Extraordinaire. I mean just note her hair and glasses. And I don't even have a photo of her hip motorcycle boots.

Dawn had Dia Calhoun and I speak this past week about rgz to a room full of YALSA librarians for college credit. They got it. We didn't. :~) Very cool. Then we joined a panel with Colleen Mondor of GuysLitWire, the awesome brother site to rgz.

Here's Colleen. This captures her much!

We were moderated exceedingly well by postergirl, librarian Jackie Parker .

So, she's not actually moderating here. But you get the gist of life with Jackie around. (Pictured: postergirl Miss Erin, my daughters Em and El, and Jackie.) It kind of looks like a panel, right?)

We had a great time discussing our sites, teen girls, and teen boys.

It was a great event at Sno-Isle Library. Thanks so much to all the fab librarians we met! And I'll try not to forget my camera next time. Grrr.

Man, how pictures can haunt a person. :)

I'd say these pictures may it look as though you all had fun, but that would be an understatement! Look at her cracking up in that shot! Oh, you are all so lucky to be quasi-neighbors.

I am so happy to live near JACKIE! Now if all the postergirlz would move to Seattle...
