Hey all my librarian or soon-to-be librarian friends! I knew you were smart, funny and kind, but I didn't know you were ultra-hip and possibly tattooed, too. My friend Julie sent me this article from the New York Times, called A Hipper Crowd of Shushers.
I thought the article was kind of fun, and I was interested in hearing reasons people give about why they became librarians, and about how the profession has changed. I love that one woman said she became a librarian because it “combined a geeky intellectualism” with information technology skills and social activism. And I didn't know there was a comic about librarians called "Unshelved". I'll have to look it up.
But I object to the term "shushers". What's that about?
