high•ly tex•tured li•brar•i•an: A person who is a specialist in library work and has curly or kinky hair.
Welcome kYmberly to Librarian Dreams.
My signature style is an afro. I have worn many different types of styles as a naturalista. I achieve my hair style by keeping it conditioned, wrapped in a silk scarf, twisted weekly, and moisturized. I actually looked up a name for my afro and she is called: DaDa.
I think that the books that have affected me the most would be Black Talk, Black Thought, Black Judgment by Nikki Giovanni. Another book would be the New York Trilogy, by Paul Auster. Each one of these authors has always been true to their art form and how it is presented on the page. I love Nikki Giovanni, because she speaks truth in regard to the African American experience, and with Paul Auster he introduced me to experimental fiction writing.
Currently, I am a graduate student at the University of North Texas in the Library Science and Information Technology Program. I decided to create a blog to document my experience as an African American graduate student. My blog has been nominated as the most Fascinating Librarian Blog of 2012.
4. If you could organize any celebrity’s personal library, who’s would it be and why?
I would choose to help Oprah Winfrey. I know her library is stacked with books for days. I would love to look at her collection, organize them, and then ask if she has any extra copies that she could give away. I believe that her efforts in regard to literacy should be heralded in our society. I only hope that I can do as much as she has in the industry.
