I will be at ALA Midwinter. I ended up on a committee, and I’ll be giving a presentation about DIY History. You going?
I’ll be there!
I’ll be there too! Can’t wait to meet peeps! Is there a Tumblr meetup?
Start a hardcore tradition this Christmas. Everyone shows up naked. You can only wear things that you have received as a present.
It will be the only time that men hope for socks.
"‘Let that son of a bitch go back to Mexico. There’s just so many things they’re doing that I don’t agree with. … Them junkies and hippies and food stamps (recipients) and all, they use the library to look at drugs and food stamps (on the Internet). I see them do it.’"
The Worst Library Election in the Country is This Saturday | EveryLibrary
That’s a quote from Mr. Lindel Toups, chair of the Parish Council in Lafourche, LA, in reference to Mexicans learning English at the Biblioteca Hispana, a Hispanic-language segment of the library system.

FedEx and UPS lay together, enjoying the warmth of each other’s bodies.
“I sure hope this lasts longer than 5 to 7 business days” UPS thought as he laid his head against FedEx’s shoulder.
“But what if we get caught?” asked FedEx, resting his head on UPS’ chest. “We won’t” UPS assured him. “But we’ve been doing this for 8 days now! They must know something has hap-” FedEx started, but he was cut off by a firm kiss.
“You’re forgetting that today is Sunday. we don’t deliver on weekends, so we still have two days together.” UPS said, smiling slyly. FedEx stared into UPS’ eyes. ‘Two days,’ FedEx thought, ‘Two whole days left.’
“I know how we can make ample use of our time,” said FedEx, kissing UPS’ neck gently. “And we can start right now.” he finished. FedEx kissed UPS’ neck once more before moving to his collar bones. He continued down UPS’ abdomen, pausing every so often.
Beneath the sheet, FedEx could feel…

Idea Lab: gcaserotti: So there’s this thing here where people dance on street...
So there’s this thing here where people dance on street corners holding advertising signs. What if we had people on occasion just show up around town dancing with a READ! sign? Our dog mascot Rascal or costumed “librarian” or just anyone, for the fun of it! #newdirector #whynot…
Yeah it’s silly and fun and would surprise people I think because they wouldn’t be expecting it. Good call on variety of signs Andy, mix it up! We’d add MAKE! to the rotation too.
Totally. You could even have a contest for exclamatory statements to put on there!

I’d do a variety of signs including “PLAY!”, “LEARN!”, and “DO!” and connect them with various services that the library offers. I’m sure someone will ‘tut tut’ the idea of this kind of advertising, but it’s a good one to grab people’s attention in the short term.
