imagesimply be marketing e-mail, “Tribal Grunge or Neon Bloom, what’s your style?,” may 2014

now, i don’t even dislike those garments, i am just like… completely baffled by the question.  which one is which?  can anyone in seattle tell me about the grunge tribes in the area?

p.s. “neon bloom” is the main character in my jem and the holograms/”ulysses” crossover fan fiction
p.p.s. i just looked at a glossary of fan fiction terms to make that joke.
p.p.p.s. "…;i was a member of the holograms yes when i put the white streak in my hair like the misfits girls used or shall I wear a pink yes and how rio kissed me under the starlight house and i thought well as well him as another and then i asked him with my synergy to ask again yes and then he asked me would i yes to say yes my hologram and first i put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my jemstar earrings all sparkly yes and his heart was going like mad and truly i said truly i will truly outrageous. “

Emphasis mine. Because Jem / Ulysses crossover fanfic.

openbooksorg:

Our book department produces zero waste! We carefully sort all donated books to optimize their utility: we use and give them away in our programs, distribute them through book grants, and sell them to support our mission. All unusable (damaged, musty, torn, etc.) books are recycled.
P.S. This year, we are positioned to give away 2 books for every 3 we sell!

All lost in a book.  Another image that will never make it into the mainstream media.

I love this

Welcome!

lismicroaggressions:

Hello! Welcome to LIS Microaggressions, an online space for librarians, archivists, and information professionals to share our experiences with microaggressions within the profession. Inspired by recent grassroots social media movements, such as The Microaggressions Project and I, Too, Am Harvard, this space aims to identify, acknowledge, and overcome the microaggressions that continue to exist in our profession and that are the real, lived experiences of LIS professionals of color today. 

My new favorite Tumblr…maybe yours too, y/y?

Part 2 of 3!

National Library Week is here, and that means it’s finally time to share the entries for the 2014 Teen Cover Art Contest!

We had 30 great submissions this year, with a theme of “Back to the Books.”

The judges (PR and Virtual Services staff at the Library) will be deliberating this week to choose our first and second place winners. The first place winner will grace the cover of the Fall issue of Library Happenings, and win an 8”Coby Tablet computer. The second place winner will receive a gift card to Art Things, Inc. in West Annapolis.

Presented in no particular order, here are 10 more of our amazing entries.

We don’t know HOW the judges are going to decide the winner when there’s so much great creativity flowing around here. Last batch to come soon…

These all look so good!
