Jesus Ascended. What Does That Mean? by Scott Douglas
"Interesting book. Very easy to read and understand. Got me thinking about familiar things in a new way and if I agreed with everything or differed in some respects which is healthy.

“When I tell people I went to library school, the most common reaction is either “You’re joking, right?” or “They have schools for librarians? Do they teach you how to properly sssh people?”
Scott Douglas

“It took a bit of popcorn and a library snack bar to make me realize that being a librarian was about more than just giving people information. It was about serving a community. And if the community is hungry for more than just knowledge, then maybe it’s about time to open a snack bar.”
Scott Douglas

“There was the smell of old books, a smell that has a way of making all libraries seem the same. Some say that smell is asbestos. ”
Scott Douglas, Quiet, Please: Dispatches From A Public Librarian

“To be great at something, you must look to the great ones of the
past and improve on the ideas and techniques that they started. I
was motivated to do better—to improve on the ideas of others.”
Scott Douglas

“There’s something deep in the heart of every person that wants
to protect culture. The only thing about my pending career that
was changed because of 9/11 was that I began to see it was the community,
not the librarian, that was important to the library. Librarians
were only as important as the community they inspired. If I
was going to continue with this career, my job wouldn’t be to protect
information, it would be to bring the community together and
inspire them to appreciate everything a library stands for.”
Scott Douglas

“When I tell people I went to library school, the most common reaction is either “You’re joking, right?” or “They have schools for librarians? Do they teach you how to properly sssh people?”
Scott Douglas

“I like to imagine that library school was started because of some sort of silly bar bet where a guy got really plastered and told his buddy that he could convince people that librarians needed to be trained in the art of librarianship. Sadly, this is not the case; its roots are a bit more academic.”
Scott Douglas

“...killing rats wasn’t in my job description.”
