Welcome to a librarian's online musings on libraries, literature and information media.

Library Shaming

Leave a comment

Tumblr site called Librarian Shaming reveals that library workers have just as many guilty pleasures and embarrassing secrets as the rest of us. 

The site, described as ‘a place for those of us in libraryland to come clean’ started as a series of hilarious anonymous confessions from librarians in Dracut, Massachusetts.

All faces have been hidden ‘to protect their professional reputations’ and Librarian Shaming is now accepting submissions from library staff, students, and well-wishers everywhere.

Admittedly, mine would read  “I have been shushed by a patron.”  Oh dear.

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to community. I love books, reading to my son,properly placed apostrophes,canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
