‘Reel Librarians’ blog turns 10!

Celebrating a decade of Reel Librarian love

Can you believe it, Reel Librarians is celebrating its first decade?! Ten years ago, on September 19, 2011, I published my very first post, “Where do I begin? A love story” on Reel Librarians. That post also explains the background about my interest in reel librarians.
