From Role Models

"And for God’s sake, don’t let me ever hear you say, ‘I can’t read fiction. I only have time for the truth’. Fiction is the truth, fool! Ever heard of ‘literature’? That means fiction, too, stupid."

— John Waters, Role Models

I listened to about 10 seconds of this before I had to turn it off.

DOES HAVING A PROFESSIONAL WEAVER FOR A GRANDMOTHER WHO HAD HER OWN YARN LIBRARY COUNT AS A QUALIFICATION?

E-crush was an early version of Tinder: discuss.  

I’m reading about a program NYPL coordinates that helps incarcerated fathers make audio recordings of themselves reading storybooks so it can be sent to their kids and I am in tears at my desk.

Libraries are amazing.

I was having a conversation with some friends and they started asking about librarianish drinks, so librarians of tumblr, here’s my task for you!

Please reblog this post with the name (and recipe, if you’d like!) of…

I love librarians because three of my favorite cocktails (Tom Collins, Highball, whiskey ginger) have already been named. 

Here’s a new trendy cocktail in Brooklyn I’ve been enjoying: Angry Balls! Pour a shot of Fireball whiskey into an Angry Orchard Cider.  

Get To Know Your Tumblarians Tuesday: Why libraries?

lecieltumultueux:

Big shoutout to transformativetidbits for the question today! We’re all at different stages and have different goals in mind, so feel free to tweak the question to fit you.

Who/what/where/when/why did you decide to go to library school, or become a librarian or information specialist or library enthusiast?

I decided to become a librarian my senior year of high school after a string of internships that made me realize I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up.  The internship coordinator had a niece who was a local children’s librarian and she arranged for me to job shadow her for a day. I wasn’t very excited about the idea of hanging out with a children’s librarian but we ended up having a great day!  In the afternoon she sent me to go hang out with the staff working the adult reference desk and I found myself wishing I could return to her area.  

I originally went to library school with the hopes of becoming a children’s librarian in a public library but now am a systems librarian in special collections.
