Welcoming Cynthia to the LG Blog Team

When Pete, Robert and I originally discussed Library Garden one of our original goals was to have voices on the blog team that represented a spectrum of views about libraries and librarianship. In particular, we wanted diversity in terms of types of libraries and also years of experience to ensure that we could have a variety of perspectives to add to our conversation.

We talked earlier this summer about adding a blogger that would represent the voice of a current LIS student or recent graduate and we have finally found one who is willing to join us. The bloggers of LG e are pleased to welcome Cynthia Lambert as our "newbie" voice.

I asked Cynthia to send me some biographical background information to put in her welcome post. Here is her response:

In brief:

Cynthia Lambert
Former Cubicle Dweller
MLIS Candidate at Rutgers
Loves to knit, geocache, scrapbook, read, and spend time in the garden.

A bit longer:

Cynthia is a part-time library assistant at Princeton Public Library while completing her MLIS at Rutgers. Her focus is on Adult Reference and User Instruction. Prior to entering the library profession, she was a financial analyst for ten years. Cynthia loves to knit, geocache, scrapbook, read and spend time in the garden with her husband and giant cat Bocce.

I hate to tell Cynthia that her days as a cubicle -dweller may not be over. I am a librarian and I dwell in a cubicle most of the day. Do you?
