It has been just over a month since Erin and I launched This is What a Librarian Looks Like. This is a fun, light-hearted, project is a complement to the Library Day in the Life Project with the simple purpose of highlighting librarians with “photos of real librarians in their real lives doing real stuff”. It has been so much fun to see the submissions from all around the globe!
This project is still open and will stay open, so if you haven’t already, submit your photo today!
But I wanted to celebrate some milestones!
The site has 3,502 followers! Thank you to each and everyone.
Earlier this week we surpassed the 450 mark for the number of submissions, some photos have more than one person in there so we are way over the 450 mark for people! Thank you to everyone who spent the time finding that “perfect” photo to represent you and submitting it. I am amazed at the diversity of the submissions!
I am blown away that this project has managed to span the globe! We also have submissions from 25 countries including: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Finland, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Latvia, New Zealand, Philippines, Republic of Belarus, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, USA, and Wales. If you submitted something and your country is not listed please let me know I have had to track these manually.
