    (Non-Fiction, Career Development - Librarians) Seventeen librarians share their career stories and insight on best staff development practices. The book had a nice layout with individual chapters and quick tips throughout the book. I really enjoyed Stephen Brooks chapter, where he shares his story of working paraprofessional positions before becoming a department head. The librarians I have met are quick to engage and share ideas; the librarians in this book are no different.

    3.5. Skimmed; it wasn't what I wanted. The book was written from entry-level librarian perspective, and it did not spend much time on paraprofessionals. 3.5. Skimmed; it wasn't what I wanted.
