this is what ALL librarians should look like

Unknown special collections librarian, The Hearst Collection, ca. 1945.

Unknown special collections librarian, The Hearst Collection, ca. 1945

am currently searching for images for the special libraries newsletter i am editing.  found this gem. I love it how this ‘unknown librarian’ is standing on a desk in her heels and a skirt. whenever i do this (for reasons of efficiency), though, I get strange looks from the patrons. see, its normal librarian behaviour! normal!

    Dear Library Temptress (teasing all those 90 year old men with a glimpse of your ankle when climbing up onto desks)

    What is your home address (send it to my email address if you prefer) – I have something of great importance to send you before your trip.

    And do you have a current phone number/email for Row and Pablo?
