This is what a librarian looks like

What I’ve learned:

Tumblr is great for submission, but terrible for indexing, searching, or just data period.

Librarians rock! They are fire dancers, fire breathers, runners, swimmers, bicyclists, zombies, fairies, roller derby divas, football players, foodies, skiers, beer lovers, whiskery and gin drinkers. They come from all over the world, in all shapes, sizes, ages, races, and ethnicities.
