Libraries and librarians are getting a lot of coverage lately. Some of the coverage, however, is bittersweet since city’s all over the country are having to cut back on library budgets and layoff skilled librarians. This hit home hard here in LA when the LAPL system recently laid off nearly 100 library staff members.
But as this NPR article notes, there is certainly a lot of love out there for libraries and librarians and there are a number of great library-themed Internet memes making the rounds right now, from the Librarians Do Gaga video to the Study Like a Scholar, Scholar Old Spice parody video (below). The linked NPR article also mentions some I wasn’t aware of. Read and enjoy.
