Living Outside the Stacks
Hello, my name is Daenel and Iâ€™m the newest contributing blogger to Eighty MPH Mom. Yay! Happy dance. Iâ€™d like to thank Jen for this opportunity, Iâ€™ve been a fan of hers since I first met her in April of last year. Her warmth and generosity shine through in both her writing and her vlogging, so when she invited me join her Monday Mingle, I couldnâ€™t help but to say â€œYes.â€ And, omg, I just love being in front of the cameraâ€¦
My bio says â€œI have the reference skills of a librarian, the preservation skills of an archivist, the organizational skills of a mother and the domestic skills of a Stepford wifeâ€ and that definitely sums me up. I blog over at Living Outside the Stacks, where I write about my life as a married mother of 4 live at home teenagers. Yes, yâ€™all, four teenagers living in my house with a husband and a dog. I also write about my life as a librarian ~ Iâ€™m very passionate about saving libraries and encouraging parents to use their libraries to encourage lifelong learning.
I will be sharing different/interesting tidbits from Library Land with you in the hopes that you will raise your voices against cuts to library services in your communities. We do so much more than just check out books. Jen has also graciously allowed me to write product reviews and share
them with her readers. I want you to know that I take reviews seriously and I will be real about my opinion.
Again, thank you, Jen! And I look forward to sharing with youâ€¦
