Hi there! My name is Adilene (Addie) Rogers. I am a librarian originally from the Bay Area but I currently work in Sacramento. I am Mexican-American and bilingual. I have dedicated the majority of my career to better serving Spanish speaking patrons by helping improve language collections, creating diverse programming and working on spreading cultural humility in librarianship. I am a firm believer that libraries have a great impact on the communities they serve and it is my hope that this blog will help spread the knowledge that I have gained working with my communities.
Why Did I Create This Blog?
I created this blog as a resource for librarians serving Spanish speaking communities and to share the successes (along with failures) that I have experienced in my career. I am always looking for better ways to serve the communities I work with and I love sharing ideas and insight. Librarianship is all about improving how we serve our patrons and I hope that this blog will help make it easier for some. I cover a wide array of public librarianship themes and I am fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of groups from babies to adults, this blog holds a little bit of everything.
I love my job and I want to spread that passion. I hope this blog helps you, I hope you learn something new and I look forward to learning a few things myself.
Here are some articles and presentations I have done:
