Hi! I’m Jen, a college librarian who loves books, movies, fashion, cats, travel, roses, Nancy Drew, Jane Austen, and chapstick. In early 2012, I began this style blog chronicling my personal style journey. I am an American born abroad (Dubai, UAE) who grew up in Texas; I have also lived and worked in Wisconsin and Abu Dhabi, the capital of UAE. Home is now the Pacific Northwest.

Why is my blog named “Librarian for Life + Style”? Because I’m a “librarian for life” — and a librarian who loves style! 🙂

You can also find out more personal aspects and random facts about me on my FAQs page, as well as via my “Behind the Blog“-tagged posts.

Here’s me:

    I’ve been following along for awhile now and appreciate the content on all of your blogs. I am also an LIS professional and, as I am currently living overseas (Moscow, Russia), I enjoy your reflections on the time you spent overseas and the transition back to the States. Your style is great fun and represents the library-world well!

      WOW, thanks sooooo much, Jessica! Your thoughtful comment has really made me smile. 😀 I think I need to add more of my reflections about living and working overseas on my blog, but it’s nice to hear that those experiences are coming through. I’m about to do a presentation about that at the community college where I work, so it’s been even more on my mind lately. Hmmm… maybe I should blog about that 😉

    Hey Jen, I would love to pick your brain (ha! it’s zombie awareness month, btw) about being a college/academic librarian. Would you be willing to email me? Cheers, Erikka

    Woot another librarian! (Hi by the way – kiwi, librarian but works in an office environment doing librarian-y things in the UK health service), really enjoyed a wee read of your blog
