It seems like every day we get another email about library cuts or closings across the country. So when this landed in my inbox, it brought a welcome smile to my face. Marilyn Johnson's This Book is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All has been one of our departmental favorites for quite some time now (our blog is called Library Love Fest). But Jenn O'Donnell, library worker and devotee of This Book is Overdue!, has trumped us all. Jenn writes:
"I completed my MLIS in 2007 and have finally obtained my first "professional" library position, after working at the circulation desk at a public library and in a support role at a law firm library. I could think of no better way to celebrate than having picture of the super librarian from the cover of This Book is Overdue!."
Jenn, you are truly a badass. Check it out!
Now, more than ever, America needs its libraries, and its librarians. For more information on the current library cuts, here's Marilyn's Op-Ed in the L.A. Times. And for more on This Book is Overdue!, check out the Facebook page, or browse inside the book.
