What makes a great librarian?

If you’ve got some books that you want to share, and your Street Library is out there, doing business with the folks in your neighbourhood, then YOU are a great librarian! You can bust out the cardie, put on your bifocals, start those seventeen books on your must-read list – or you can happily set up the box, comb out that magnificent moustache, hop on your fixie, and ride off into the sunset, local brew in hand. It’s up to you.

Q. Do you know how many librarians it takes to screw in a light bulb?

A. No, but I know where you can look it up!

Q: How many librarians does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: Usually 645.5. Sometimes 808.882. Ah, Dewey.

Meet librarians who are just like you. Meet librarians that are NOTHING LIKE you. But know that you’re all committed to spreading the love of literacy across your neighbourhood. Facebook each other. Fill up that Instagram feed with pretty pics and hashtag like there’s no tomorrow.
