(Spoiler alert: bowling shirts and slacks.)
For fun on a Friday:
This week the fantasy fiction podcast Podcastle published In the House of the Seven Librarians, a fairy tale about a foundling raised in the Carnegie Library. Don't look for it to break any stereotypes about librarians being fussy women with hair buns, but... it's a fairy tale. That's not what it's for. Enjoy.
Wow, I started a meme!
A committee at work was writing a sample letter to faculty, and we signed it "Librarian X." Naturally, some of us started speculating that Librarian X must be a superhero, and at the end of the day I whipped up a picture of him on Heromachine to send out.
Here he is, fighting information illiteracy wherever it may occur: Librarian X!
Naturally, my colleague protested that he's male; fair enough, given the demographics of our profession. I was instructed to make a female version (Librarian XX, to go with this Librarian XY). I haven't gotten around to it yet. Maybe they're a duo?
The other members of the Library League that I know of:
Alter Ego (I like his steampunky edge)
Drop a comment if you want me to link you here. Ex Libris and Excelsior!
Edit: Created a Flickr pool! More librarian heroes there!
