behold the power of librarians
When I wrote that post about Palin being described as a “sexy librarian” I didn’t really expect many people beyond this little blog’s readership to read it. But it got passed around a bit (which has left me doing my best to resist re-writing it or at least giving it a thorough go-through) which is flattering, and pretty heartening. On something of a whim, I started my first political facebook group: “Sarah Palin is not a ‘sexy librarian’” and invited just a couple of people to join. I figured I might get a dozen or two members, as long as it was more than 10, I wouldn’t feel too lame. We’re nearly at 400 members now. It’s sometimes easy to forget, though obvious in hindsight, that librarians are a very connected and active group – and friends of librarians are pretty awesome, too. Now I just have to figure out what one does with a facebook group.
