You’re Invited! – This Is What a Librarian Looks Like

I’m so excited to announce this new project! As the ultimate compliment to Library Day in the Life we bring you This is What a Librarian Looks Like!

What: a site to go beyond the bun and challenge old, outdated librarian stereotypes with photos of real librarians in their real lives doing real stuff🙂

Who: YOU! The site is up and running and ready for submissions. So find a picture that you think best represents you to the world and submit it! Please don’t submit photos of others and be tasteful! This is a fun, light-hearted project, please approach it in that spirit!

Where: This is What a Librarian Looks Like!

When: NOW! Go submit something already!

Your editors are Bobbi Newman and Erin Downey Howerton and we’ll be approving submissions as fast as we can!

Inspired by is What a Scientist Looks Like.

    1. Unfortunately there isn’t a way for submitters to edit their photos and captions after they have been submitted. You can email me the details and I can edit it.
