There is this beautiful book that has been published just a couple of weeks ago called This is What a Librarian Looks Like.
Photographed and compiled by Kyle Cassidy, this book illustrates the importance of librarians, libraries, and their place in the world when it comes to protecting and sharing information. Full of diversity, it showcases the myriad of people who have dedicated their lives to this important job. Men and women of all ages, backgrounds, and styles are featured in this book that also includes thoughts from a plethora of authors.
If you get a chance to hold the book, take a few moments and look through the portraits and libraries, skim through the essays, and allow yourself to be reminded how wonderful libraries are.
