Share Your Librarian Shame on Tumblr

   October 8th, 2013 Brian Herzog

There's a new Tumblr in town - Librarian Shaming. If you're a librarian and would like to confess your inappropriate library behavior, this is the place to come clean:

librarian shaming

This Tumblr idea started with librarians at the Parker Memorial Library in Dracut, MA, a couple towns over from Chelmsford. Their director sent out a general email announcing it last week, and I intended to talk about it this week, but in putting it off, I got scooped by LISNews, the New Yorker blog and the UK's Daily Mail, not to mention lots of other blogs and tweets out there.

It's fun to read through, and certainly I'm sure everyone who works in a library has something they can contribute. Luckily, Librarian Shaming has a handy submission form!

I like this as much as I liked @YourALAsecrets - which is to say, a lot.
