Hello Kitty Librarian
Library Staff Only Giveaway!

Happy National Library Week Librarians and Library staff!

To celebrate National Library Week and say thanks for all the wonderful and hard working librarians & library staff, I'm having a giveaway open to current library staff and current library students! You need to be working at a library or in a graduate program right now to enter.

Prize: $25 Amazon gift card for one lucky winner!

Library Week Giveaway

This giveaway is only open to current library staff or graduate library school students! To enter, just leave a comment on this post. (If you want, tell me what type of library you work at or general location...or anything else you want!) If your email isn’t associated with your Blogger account, please be sure to leave your email in the message.
Note: This giveaway is limited to current librarians, library staff and library school students. One winner will be picked at random using
Deadline: Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at midnight, Pacific Daylight Time
Disclosure: This giveaway is paid for by me.
*** Updated: Contest is closed. Congrats to Erin (entry #30) ***
I'm not going to ask for your library badge, pay stubs, or quiz you about the Dewey or LC classification system, so be honest and only enter if you are currently working at a library right now. And if you cheat and toss everything your mom taught you in the gutter...know that karma will make every single library book you ever check out mysteriously get lost or damaged, and you'll somehow manage to rack up fines that may ruin your credit. Just sayin'.
Pin It!

I'll graduate with my MLS in a few weeks, and I just got a temporary children's reference position at a public library. I'll be looking for something more permanent in the next few months, but my first post-grad library job is pretty exciting!

Are you going to ALA?

Aw, how nice! Happy National Library Week to you, too! I work in a small college library near New York City. Not very exciting, but quite relaxed. Lots of baked goods show up in the staff lounge, which is a bonus.

Rachel said... [Reply to comment]

Yay!! The first comment never wins a prize, but I'm an elementary school library media specialist! It's the best job I could ever ask for.

Happy NLW!

I'm a Library Assistant at two libraries -- a big, scary, urban one and a regional library in a small town. I've been telling everyone I'm going to get my MLS, but who knows? Those things are expensive!

I drove by the Nordic Ware factory in Minneapolis this morning and thought of you! I'm a librarian, cooking enthusiast, and made my first bundt cake this year...I couldn't resist your pics any longer and had to try one for myself.

Catalogers like National Library Week too! And some enjoy turning that professional attention to detail to cooking as well...(and then there's me).

I always look forward to you posts, and enjoy your cheeky tweets as well.

Happy NLW 2011 to all, and to all an authorized subject heading!

My library gives away tons of candy durning NLW and the students love it, but my favorite part are the READ posters featuring faculty members.

I love your blog and you are very generous. I am a government documents librarian at an academic library in Florida.

Christina Eaton said... [Reply to comment]

I am the associate principal librarian at a symphony orchestra - we do a lot of research and put music on stage but are not a lending library, and always joke that we are not "real" librarians - so you don't have to include me in the drawing if you don't want to! But I do have a Nancy Pearl action figure on my desk and - get this - I had her sign it when she gave a talk at the Library a couple years ago! Also, I love your blog.

Karen said... [Reply to comment]

Happy National Library Week to you as well! How about asking everyone for their thoughts on RDA as proof that they're librarians? (and if they say it's absolutely wonderful, you know they're lying ;) Alright, maybe that just applies to catalogers. I'm currently working as a cataloger at a law school in New York City. Have a great one!

Unknown said... [Reply to comment]
