Craftster Loves Librarians
|Share the love...||
Many people think of librarians as quiet, mousy, shy women who may not be all that interesting. Being a librarian myself, I can tell you that stereotype is as outdated as the macrame projects we featured last April Fool’s Day! In fact, it makes sense that so many librarians are Craftsters, as they tend to share many traits: curiosity, desire to learn new things, generosity, respect for others’ work and skill, and detail-orientation. There are many kinds of librarians: school librarians, university librarians, public librarians, corporate librarians, law and medical librarians, digital librarians, and more. If you want to learn about a new craft, browse craft books or videos, or any other topic on your mind, your local reference librarian is a great place to start!
With all this love of libraries and books around Craftster, naturally there are lots of amazing librarian and book inspired crafts throughout the boards. There have even been a number of librarian and book-themed swaps. You can check some of these out here, here, here, here, here, here , and here. These are just a few of the amazing librarian crafts we’ve seen around Craftster. Here’s to the crafty guys and gals rocking the stacks around the world!
