+Jole Seroff and I are in the library, making bookspine poetry. What precisely can you tell about the particular juncture at which people find themselves in their lives when they start with the prompt Six Impossible Things...? Might someone have kids at home?

That's what we are prepping for now. Just it is a bit too fun.... And, trying to figure out how to put Humpty Dumpty back together again at the end of the month. Any ideas on managing that much movement in the stacks?

Librarian and search geek. Passionate about how we teach people to find what they want, and making it easier than ever with search.
Introduction
Passionate about enabling people to find quality information with popular tools. Equally passionate about methods for learning and teaching about search. Google Search Education expert.

While I work at Castilleja, these post reflect my own thoughts and not those of my employer. It is completely my own obsession with search and wonder that I share here.
