Good folks out there, I seek to talk with anyone who works in a library of any kind!

I'm trying to understand what it's like as a work environment, get real-life examples of what sort of stresses and responsibilities it entails (won't ask for personal details/pay/location etc).

DM and replies open. Thank you!

TIL This is the "noise" captured by Voyager 1 in the interstellar medium. I can't be entirely sure there are no space whales

Wonder how practical it would be to build something approaching the Voyager probes' durability in my living room

I recently learned about the 13 planets in our solar system while reading to my 3yo and I’m very excited to share this!

When I was in school we learned about 9 planets. Since then, discoveries were made, models and definitions were revised, and here we have an updated, more accurate map of our solar system.

I gotta say I do love science in these moments.

Small, rocky
Mercury
Venus
Earth
Mars

Giant, gaseous
Jupiter
Saturn
Uranus
Neptune

Dwarf, icy
Ceres
Pluto
Haumea
Makemake
Eris

Seeing as it's #InternationalPronounsDay, I'd like to remind you that singular they/them are genderless pronouns by definition. These do not refer exclusively to any nonbinary gender identities, and do not belong to nonbinary people.

They/them can be used for anyone and everyone.

If you don't know what someone's preferred pronouns are, using they/them is always a gramatically correct choice, because these words refer simply to "this one person"

Staying up till 2am has a real cost when you're not 21 anymore.

It's 5pm and I'm having my first lunch. Moving is always, always hard. Decided to go with what I know well - dal rice. ❤️

Controversial opinion:

is the most useless platform to have gone mainstream in a while.

It feeds further into the "me, me, me" culture.

We shoud do better.

Good morning everyone.

Going to get tested for today because societies in have weird rules. 😅

We, quite simply, are a safe space. A larger goal is to become a place for you and your friends to feel comfortable not just showing your uber positive highlight reel, but also talk about personal, often difficult, content that other platforms tend to penalize.
