"What’s the sexiest part about being a librarian?"
"I’d say the width of our knowledge. The rest of academia seems to have a rather specific focal point, whereas librarians need to know enough to serve as a guide for researchers of every discipline."

Thanks to Darryl at the Tocker Foundation for giving me his Nancy Pearl action figure. I can’t believe this is happening! I admired it as it was sitting on their TLA table and they just gave it to me!

Dreams really do come true!

Amanda and Donna both agree that the Batgirl sneakers are THE BEST.

Also, it’s National Library Workers Day.  Woohoo, party at the Reference Desk!

Partaaay!  We’ll bring the Bat-shots

Pour .5oz Captain Morgan into pint glass, and fill halfway with Coke. Pour Bailey’s, Vanilla vodka, and root beer schnapps in equal parts into shot glass. Sing “NANANANANANANANA BATMAAAAAAAN” and drop the shot glass into the pint glass. Drink quickly, before the Bailey’s curdles! Tastes like a root beer float, feels like a Batarang to the face.

Holy Dewey Decimal System, Batman!

Here’s the link for more information about the PS244 fundraising campaign

Here’s the link to the GIVE IT ALL TO ME Library Collection at OutofPrintClothing.com.

Check it out! The good folks dropped me a line about this project last week, and I’m happy to boost for Library Week.

I need one of those t-shirts in a ‘oh why isn’t there free shipping to the UK’ in a kind of way.
