Many of the librarians we collaborate with are women, and as part of our continued appreciation and love for them, join us as we shine a light on Women’s History Month.
Over the past year, it’s been a nourishing adventure for me, learning about the amazing work of the librarians that connect with PLIX.
In particular, from our Sonic Seasoning beta-testing group earlier this year, I’ve had the pleasure to get to know Stacy Lane, the Youth Services Librarian, of Laurel Public Library in Delaware. She has been offering programming to support her rural community’s interests and knowledge gaps in financial management, homesteading, and teen life skills. With her library team, she also helps bring in numerous resources through grant funding, especially for the critical issue of food insecurity. On top of this amazing work, she’s also a full time student, and a mother of 2.
The incredible work that Stacy and other PLIX librarians have done for their community has inspired me to connect more deeply with the joys, aspirations, and concerns of my friends and artists of my local neighborhood, and join efforts to support an emerging housing problem.
PLIX really would not be the same without the many librarians we work with. Many of our activities and creative learning resources were developed in collaboration with librarians for librarians. Thank you for being here and sharing your stories with us.
As many of our PLIX librarians are women, and as part of our continued appreciation and love for them, 👉join our PLIX Interns Emmi and Vivian on the forum as they share their stories and shine a light (with our Paper Circuits projects) on the women in their lives with Paper Circuit.
