I’m Danielle Larca, a youth services librarian in New Jersey. I started blogging with a friend as a way to keep track of what I read and dip my toes into the ever-expanding universe of book bloggers. I’ve decided now is the time to branch out on my own. In the spirit of librarianship, I hope to share the books I love with all of you. I read widely-everything from picture books to adult fiction, kidlit to memoirs. As a children’s librarian, I will also be sharing ideas for successful programs I’ve conducted in my library.
Why I am a “paper pusher”:
Books simultaneously root us in a better understanding of people and the world and allow us to soar on the gossamer wings of imagination. I believed this when I was a little girl, throwing “reading parties” with my sisters, and I believe it now, as a youth services librarian. While I appreciate the ease and convenience that many modern technologies offer, none of them can replace the weighty feel of a book in my hand, its pages offering up their heady aroma. Some may say I’m crazy, but those who’ve experienced true book love know what I mean.
*Note: I recently imported my posts from the previous site I was blogging on, DogEar, to The Paper Pusher. So even though this no longer looks like my first post in my new home, now you can view all of my other book reviews right here!
