Let's try some basic visualization.
What comes into my mind when I think of librarians?
Now, close your eyes.
No, really. Close your eyes. That's the basic rule of visualization.
Close your eyes and think about the question.
Got a good mental image?
I will admit that the first image that pops into my head is sweet, timid Mary Bailey from It's A Wonderful Life.
The second is this lady.
I know, I know.
What did YOU visualize?
This week I want to give a nod to all the librarians out there that go against stereotype, the ones with a robust sense of humor.
Here's to the librarians that make us do a double-take, to the ones that get the last laugh.
1. Passive-Aggressive Librarians
2. Ironic Librarians
3. Cheeky Librarians
4. Hungry Librarians
5. Pop Culture Loving Librarians
6. One-Liner Librarians
Here's to ALL the librarians who get the last laugh.
And thanks. Not only do you help broaden our minds, you brighten our days.
