There is No Such Thing as a Typical Librarian pulls back the curtain on the day to day operation of working in both an academic and public library. It is a love letter to the library profession based on the personal experiences of Steve Antonuccio, who worked in libraries for over 30 years. Mr. Antonuccio began his career as a media specialist for Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs in 1982. He spent 20 years at the Pikes Peak Library District creating and operating the Library Channel as the manager of the educational cable access studio. The Library Channel reached 80,000 households in Colorado Springs. He produced over 100 video portraits and documentaries and was nominated for two Heartland Emmy awards and two national Cable Ace awards for his programming. After retiring from the Pikes Peak Library District in 2008, Steve went to work for the Pueblo City-County Library District for six years as a branch manager. He worked on the front lines of public service and tells both poignant and humorous stories about working with the public. Steve attained a Masters in Library Science from Emporia State in 1992. This book has a foreword written by Camila Alire, former 2009-2010 President of the American Library Association.
