1. For National Library Week 2017 the North Richland Hills Library staff wanted to prove to the world that a modern librarian is much more than a stern person who shushes you and reads books. So we followed around one of our librarians all day to show exactly what a #ModernLibrarian does.
  2. Modern Librarians start their days early! Our Librarian Johana came in to set up for a program at 7:30 a.m.
  3. Our #ModernLibrarian has already been working this morning! She came in early to set up tables & chairs for our AARP Tax Aide program.

  4. We then introduced our #ModernLibrarian to our followers and she told a little bit about why she wanted to become a librarian.
  5. Our #ModernLibrarian started out her day on the Reference Desk....
  6. Our #ModernLibrarian is guiding a phone patron on how to download eBooks using Overdrive.

  7. In between helping patrons, Johana was making suggestions for a patron that utilized our Book Guru service.
  8. After hanging out with Johana for a while, we decided to run a poll!

  10. Every Library Worker Can Relate to What Happened to Our #ModernLibrarian Today
  11. At last! Johana was able to make her way to The Maker Spot, our library makerspace, and get to work on what she told us is her 'usual routine' for a Thursday morning...
  12. As we said, duties may vary. #ModernLibrarian #LibraryWorker #NationalLibraryWeek #librariestransform
  13. And, inevitably, she had to put her technology skills to work!
  14. She found a moment to check something off her to-do list...
  15. In between helping patrons and dealing with tech issues, we asked our #ModernLibrarian..."Do you even read? It seems like you don't have time."
