Welcome to my blog! My name is Kathy Parker and I’m a life long lover of all things books. A librarian for more than 30 years, I’m looking to discuss books with others. Oh yes, I’m a Cubs fan, too!
Wondering why my blog is named Marianslibrary? Ever since I first saw the movie, The Music Man, when it premiered in the theaters in 1962, it left a lasting impression on a certain 7 year-old little girl! I fell in love with the music, Professor Harold Hill, and a certain fictional librarian, Marian Peru. I decided since I loved to read and at the encouragement from my very own English teacher - my mother – I decided to pursue the prospect of becoming a librarian when I grew up!
Enjoy this clip from The Music Man of “Marian the Librarian” from YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnFv29iPACc&feature=related
