This Is What a Librarian Looks Like: A Celebration of Libraries, Communities, and Access to Information by Kyle Cassidy

Into the Wild

Read This Is What a Librarian Looks Like: A Celebration of Libraries, Communities, and Access to Information Online Free - In 2014, author and photographer Kyle Cassidy published a photo essay on Slate.com called "This is What A Librarian Looks Like," a montage of portraits and a tribute to librarians. Since then, Cassidy has made it his mission to remind us of how essential librarians and libraries are to our communities. His subjects are men and women of all ages, backgrounds, and personal style-from pink hair and leather jackets to button-downs and blazers. In short, not necessarily what one thinks a librarian looks like. The nearly 220 librarians photographed also share their personal thoughts on what it means to be a librarian. This is What A Librarian Looks Like also includes original essay by some of our most beloved writers, journalists, and commentators including Neil Gaiman, George R.R. Martin, Nancy Pearl, Cory Doctorow, Paula Poundstone, Amanda Palmer, Peter Sagal, Jeff VanderMeer, John Scalzi, Sara Farizan, Amy Dickinson, and others. Cassidy also profiles a handful of especially influential librarians and libraries.

How could I resist? I'm a retired Librarian and I just knew that I would love this tribute to the profession and and the wonderful contributions that librarians make to society. If you have an advanced digital copy like I was fortunate enough to get, do yourself a favor and read it on an IPad or...

From as early as I can remember, I frequented my local library. At age three I was mesmerized by a blue whale skeleton suspended from the ceiling of the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History, so my mother took me to the Ray Bradbury Public Library to get book after book about whales and dolphin...

I’m not a Librarian, but I spent much of my childhood in our town Library. There aren’t too many buildings from that town that I can still picture clearly, but the Library is at the top of that list. I grew up in a family of readers, and my parents always had our house filled with books – most of...

5★ Mel Gooch of San Francisco Public Library claims: “Librarians are the ultimate search ninjas.” What a treat! A beautifully presented production that should be required reading for all public officials, civic leaders, and politicians. Teachers, parents and the general public already know how indi...

My thank you to all the librarians in my life, and my children's lives that brought us the wonder of books....

I will admit that I am a little partial to this book because I'm one of the librarians featured in it, BUT that is not the only reason by a long shot! Kyle Cassidy has done an insanely impressive job compiling the essence and passion of librarianship into one beautiful coffee table book. Over 300...

First & foremost, thank you to NetGalley & Black Dog & Leventhal for a digital ARC in exchange for my honest review. This book was... okay. I've seen other reviews describe this as a good coffee table book and I absolutely agree with those assessments. The blurbs from each of the libr...

I've been dipping in and out of this lovely book for the last month or so. If any librarian on the planet was after quotes or ideas to explain exactly why they do what they do, then this book is just full of them. What changes a collection of books into something useful is a librarian: a curator,...

The many libraries and librarians featured in this book made me especially proud to be a member of this amazing profession! Libraries are conduits to connection, learning, training, entertainment, answers and much more. They serve everyone. Whether or not you choose to use them, they provide tang...

This review can also be found on my blog at: https://diminishingthoughts.wordpress... I received this book from the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I took way longer than necessary to finish this book. What attracted me to this book was the fact that it celebrated Libraries...
