Quotes and Dedications“Adult librarians are like lazy bakers: their patrons want a jelly doughnut, so they give them a jelly doughnut. Children’s librarians are ambitious bakers: 'You like the jelly doughnut? I’ll get you a jelly doughnut. But you should try my cruller, too. My cruller is gonna blow your mind, kid.”
― John Green

"For the Children" from the Effing Librarian.
Probably the greatest advocate for children's librarians that I have run across is Will Manley. Here are some of his many words devoted to espousing our good qualities:
- "You Know You're Married to a Children's Librarian When Your Spouse..." Funny post, and lots of nice things from other librarians in the comments.
- "The Importance of Children's Librarians" What do kidlibs do that designers don't?
- "No More Kidding Around" Money quote: " I believe that children’s librarians are our profession’s best hope for strong leaders."
