For December 1 – December 7
I set up a tumblr account to be a more casual, less wordy sister to this blog, and I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a weekly wrap up to share my favorite posts and articles that I found via my feed over there. I’m not sure if this will end up being interesting or worthwhile, but for now, here is a compendium of my favorite tumblr posts from the past week, as well as a few original features I’ve started over there.
FAVE LIBRARIES: The British Library, May 2014
Since I’ve been lucky enough to travel around and visit some pretty exciting and beautiful libraries, I wanted to start sharing my experiences. My favorite library for December is the British Library, check out the original post to read my story about visiting. (Also mad shout out to the amazing lady in this photo, Mackenzie, all around amazing person and future archivist, who has been wonderful in supporting this blog and me and is a wonderful shining light in my life.)
Tumblarians are busy posting photos of the incredible Christmas trees made out of books at their libraries – my favorite is this one, posted by catscardigansbooks, topped by the brightest star in the sky: David Hasselhoff. I’ll be updating my tag as I come across more.
FERGUSON LIBRARY CONTINUES TO BE INCREDIBLE
With a portion of the $300,000 (!!!!!!!!) in donations that the library has received, the amazing staff there have been putting together these Healing Kits, complete with books and a stuffed animal that the child gets to keep! I have a lot more to say about the Ferguson Library and how great they are in a future post, but until then might I remind you that you can still donate. Thanks to mylifeinthelibrary for sharing this with the tumblrverse!
I GOT PAID TO READ WEATHER FORECASTS FOR THE WHOLE MONTH OVER THE PHONE
This is it. This is my life now. Thanks telephone reference.
These are just a few of the awesome things that are happening over on the library side of tumblr and in my library life. For more from me, you can visit my tumblr, and for other library-related posts, check out #libraries and #tumblarians.
