Good to be Back

After a much needed break from school and work, I am happy to be back at my beloved Skokie. Despite this being my last semester of library school and of this internship, I am excited to continue challenging myself within my career and taking on new projects. This semester is still an extension of what I did last semester.

Teaching Tech Classes 

  • February, I will be teaching a two part class on Google drive to parents at McCracken Elementary School in Skokie.
  • April-May, I will be teaching a four part Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the Introduction of Design of Everyday Things in the BOOMBox.
  • Continuing One on One Tech classes as assigned.

Leading Book Discussions and Reader’s Advisory

  • February, leading a book discussion of Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
  • April, leading a book discussion of Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler
  • Continuing Bookmatch rotation, Booklists, and Reader’s Advisory work


  • Weeding Mystery collection based on condition, duplication, and circulation statistics.

Desk Time

  • Continuing regular desk hours at Reference, Reader’s Services, and AV.

Independent Study

  • Finally, my project I think I am the most excited about. Creating a Reader’s Advisory platform for TV Shows and Movies!

​Stay tuned!


One thought on “Good to be Back

  1. Thanks for the update, Rachel! It looks like you’ve really jumped in and taken advantage of all the opportunities here at the library. I’m particularly interested in the MOOC you’re teaching on the Design of Everyday Things. Is the class centered on Donald Norman’s book? It was one of the required readings at my grad school.
