The Art of Being a Cool Librarian

See on Scoop.itK-12 School Libraries

 There’s a serious reason behind everything Kemple is doing with music programming at the Main Library, even if it sometimes means wearing the gorilla suit he got as a wedding present three years ago.

Susan Grigsby‘s insight:

Okay…I don’t think I’ll be wearing a gorilla suit but I have been known to don a civil war gown, a princess dress, a cowgirl outfit, and unbelievably weird hats. I love this quote by Stephen Kemple: "I see being a librarian as not that different from being an artist or running a gallery,” he explains. “When I talk about blowing minds, I don’t necessarily mean in the sense of cheap gags or thrills, but really turning people on to how vast and amazing the world is."

Very important words, indeed.
