Hi, I'm William

I’m a librarian from Lawrence, Kansas and creator of the library-centric Librarian Problems Tumblr. Described by Library Journal’s Tumblr-in-Chief, Molly McArdle, as the GIF-king of all librarian tumblrs, Librarian Problems pairs common librarian situations, frustrations, and stereotypes with animated reaction GIFs.

My public library experience includes work in reference, administration, cataloging, and collection development. I served as Director of the Oskaloosa Public Library in Oskaloosa, Iowa from 2012 to 2015, and am currently the Cataloging and Collection Development Coordinator at the Lawrence Public Library in Lawrence, Kansas.

My book, Librarian Tales: Funny, Strange, and Inspiring Dispatches from the Stacks is available now from Skyhorse Publishing. Pick it up to learn about my personal public library journey and read a few tales from fellow workers in the field!
