I don’t think I’ve ever seen a librarian take a break. I walk into the library and hear the faint clacking of keyboards, librarians browsing lists of new releases for hours. Around the corner, in the young adult section, another librarian is rattling off a dozen recommendations to a teenage patron. Down the next aisle, I see another librarian filing, looking at every label and gently sliding book after book onto the shelf, spine facing out.
At Baker & Taylor, we know how hard librarians work. As a frequent librarian patron, I see your hard work day after day. As a marketing specialist here at B&T, I give librarians major props and want to help lighten your load. And our marketing resources do just that. —Emma Way, eMarketing Specialist
