Librarians and Book Displays...

This library creepster stared at me my whole shift.
Librarians love, love, LOVE their book displays.  It's one of the few ways they can show off their creativity at work.  It reminds me of grade school and how teachers would decorate their classrooms and bulletin boards, I find it strangely comforting.  Unfortunately, there is only one small space dedicated to displays at my branch and it's tucked away in a corner in non-fiction. 

A lot of library backrooms are bound to be filled with holiday themed decorations.  I believe librarians tend to become hardcore hoarders the longer they've been in the profession, especially now with dwindling budgets.  So I really shouldn't have been surprised when I encountered this display when I covered another branch during their staff meeting.  Of course a librarian would own a life-size cardboard cut-out of Fabio.


  1. This literally made my morning. So great!

  2. I'm glad to hear Fabio made someone's day. I'm just wondering what will be staring at me next month at this branch.
