Fancy Librarian

I heart the Internet.

It’s still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.

I’m getting really excited for LLD May 4-6 in DC until I went to book my hotel… SCRATCH. So expensive! Is anyone heading in that is looking for a roommate? Or know of one?

I have references (many on Tumblr!) that can tell you I am an A+…

Everyone I have found a place to stay, thanks for the signal boosts! YES there are a lot of reasons to go to conferences/events besides meetings and attending sessions, the main one being FRIENDSHIP

I have references (many on Tumblr!) that can tell you I am an A+ roommate, no snoring, generally clean, and definitely lots of laughs. Please message me if you are interested :)

I really really want an all-night library

delorienaz:

Like a regular library, but open 24 hours and there are bunk beds and things to sleep on, and all the books you can read, and a little booth that sells tea.

Just somewhere you could go if you have insomnia or are lonely in the middle of the night, or need somewhere to hang with friends after hours, or just want to be in a public space at night that’s not a bar or club.
