On Monday, May 13, I was given access to a workplace email account and my signature line currently reads:

Jill Brown, MLIS
Caro Area District Library
989.673.4329

“…There is something magical about walking the aisles and checking out the stacks of books. Being wedged between stacks and having the smell of books drift into my nose is comforting. If I could live in the library, I would.” –Authors for Libraries, a program of United for Libraries

MLIS…wow. *pinches her self*

A sentimental moment: I sent the first email from that account to two colleagues/friends in the LIS field. It read:

To the first two people I met when starting library school…
I wanted the two of you to be first to receive an email from this account with my newly granted professional credential. Thank you for all of your kind words and encouragement!
