The Adventures of Library Girl: Libraries as Cultivators of Creativity: There's an App for That!

"I am not an artist.  But when I created this blog, I knew I wanted an avatar that would come to be synonymous with "Library Girl."  I figured, if I was going to don a virtual super hero persona, I would, at minimum, need a cartoon character version of my self who, if not able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, would at least sport a cape.

So... I started hitting up my artsy friends.  Alas, none of them were interested in creating a comic ME for which I could pay them exactly nothing.  Go figure.  Which left me with nothing to do but rely upon my own skills.  Let me repeat:  I am not an artist.

I am, however, a librarian."
