Welcome to Tea Toast & Trivia. Thank you for listening in.
Neil Gaiman said “Librarians are the coolest people out there doing the hardest job out there on the frontlines. And every time I get to encounter or work with librarians, I’m always impressed by their sheer awesomeness.”
Librarians have awesome, even magical powers. They are the champions of literacy; they safeguard our stories and keep record of our ideas. Above all, they are the wizards that facilitate learning. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to their determination to preserve and protect our civilization.
We live in a world where technology and connectivity are growing exponentially. Now, more than ever, we need librarians to be our guides. How to annotate texts? Ask a librarian. What is copyright and fair use? Ask a librarian. How to determine whether the information is honest? Ask a librarian.
Librarians keep us grounded and create spaces that encourage and support exploration.
I am pleased to introduce Martha, my long-time friend from college days, who chose to be a librarian. Martha joined me in a huge leap into the podcasting unknown from a distance. We are linking Vancouver and Winnipeg, which is a separation of 2,313 kilometers
So, put the kettle on and join in the conversation. We would love to hear your thoughts on TeaToastTrivia.com
I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Thank you for joining Martha and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. A special thank you to Martha for sharing her love of books and for agreeing to come back in future podcasts. One last thought comes from Albert Einstein, who said many years ago. “The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”
Until next time, dear friends, safe travel wherever your adventures take you. And don’t forget that libraries have the best adventures
