Kathleen O’Neill wrote about her adventures on her own blog, The Victorian Librarian, but it’s perfect for 23 Librarians, so I’m reblogging it here with permission. Find Kathleen on Twitter @kathleenoneill.
That brings our Scottish 23 Librarians tally to 49. My ambition is to hit 50 at least. Can anyone help?
It’s been almost three weeks since my last blog post; I have survived the first two weeks of running a school library. It’s started really well, but the work is nonetheless hard, with so much to learn, and thus has been incredibly exhausting. Consequently, blogging hasn’t really been a priority. You might suspect me of withdrawing my allegiance from Rupert Giles, given this blogpost’s title, but this will never be so. The truth of the matter is that I wanted to break the ice with the pupils by showing that we had some shared interests; the regrettable truth is that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is older than a good few of the kids, while they are mostly likely to know who Batman is. I haven’t tested them on their knowledge of the Buffyverse but invoking the Batverse has worked out well.
