Lib Loop: Dispelling the shushing librarian

Livia Lewin
Lib Loop

Librarian hobbies: being owned by cats, knitting cardigans, reading books, shushing. Just kidding! (If I find myself shushing someone, something has gone terribly wrong.) I bet that your vocation in life has some stereotypes about it that make you roll your eyes. Welcome to the club.

If you had a shushing librarian in your past, please give us a chance to dispel that memory with a new one. I promise. No stern looks, no shushing. September was national library card month, but we give cards out year-round. Become a member or dust off the card that has been sitting in the miscellaneous drawer in the kitchen.
