I’ve always had an enormous soft spot in my heart for lost animals and “forgotten” people. Perhaps this is why I like to mentor new librarians and those who might someday like to become librarians. After 20+ years in the profession, it has become clear to me that I have the chance, if not duty to give back some of what others have taught me to the newer generation coming after me. While so much has changed during my tenure, basic library principles of good service and strong reference skills have not. This “passing the torch”, so to speak, may be the best contribution I could make to a profession I love so dearly.
