LOTR Librarian

This blog is for lovers of LOTR wishing to find information about Tolkien, discuss Tolkien, or for librarians who happen to love Tolkien's books. (No movie discussion here, please.) It is also for general librarianship rants based on experiences or beliefs of the LOTR Librarian. Attention Spammers: Your comments will be deleted. Don't waste your time here. Go elsewhere. English-only comments please. If you want to comment in Mandarin, German, Spanish, etc; frequent blogs in those languages.


"Oyarsa" for those who don't know, is the name of an archangel (or "god" with a little 'g') in C. S. Lewis's Space Trilogy. I liked the character, so I stole the name. Who am I? I am a library science student in Illinois who has a variety of interests--too many to list! I have worked in libraries for five years and counting.

Are you a good person?

Libararies Aren't Daycare Centers

Libraries Aren't Daycare Centers

Parents, this cannot be stressed enough. You wouldn't leave your toddler alone in a shopping mall or drop him off to play in a supermarket, don't do it in a library. People who prey on children use libraries as well. Use common sense.

There have been incidents of perverts and/or predators attempting to kidnap children in libraries. Here is a recent case in a public library in Des Moines. Become educated. Don't let your child become a statistic.
