10 of the Coolest Librarians Alive – Flavorwire

10 of the Coolest Librarians Alive – Flavorwire | What makes a Librarian? | Scoop.it

Face it: most librarians are probably cooler than you. After all, their job is to wrangle books, attract readers, and then get the two together — one of our own favorite activities. Though for many years, the librarian stereotype was a severe old lady who couldn’t stand excessive noise, the mold has changed (to the extent that even the New York Times has noticed). Now, many librarians are punk-rock agents of social change, complete with tattoos, tech savvy, and new ideas to get books to the people. After the jump, meet just a few of the very coolest librarians alive — and since we know there are hundreds out there, add your favorite book lender (or yourself) in the comments.

In the creative community, professional development might mean workshops on website creation, business management, social media, and more.
