Meet the Buzzing about Romance Librarians!
On our May 30, 2021 Episode we will introduced the Librarians that have joined us to help bring more book recs to our followers and listeners.
Libraries and Librarians are such important part of our communities and that includes the Book Blog Community. It is really important to us that we are doing everything we can to help make reading accessible for all. One of the greatest treasures is Libraries. I am avid reader and an advocate for reading romance but there is something magical about librarians. You can interact with our Librarians on both our discord server or our Facebook group but also make sure you follow them on their social media. (All will be linked below)
