Pop Goes the Library

Using Pop Culture to Make Libraries Better.

by Sophie Brookover, Liz Burns, Melissa Rabey, Susan Quinn, John Klima, Carlie Webber, Karen Corday, and Eli Neiburger. We're librarians. We're pop culture mavens. We're Pop Culture Librarians.


Congratulations All Around

So much joy & excitement in the world of Pop!

First, Carlie Webber: Mover & Shaker. Great write-up, awesome photo, so, so proud to know her. Please go congratulate her at her other blog, Librarilly Blonde!

Second, welcome, welcome to John & Shai Klima's second baby, Mr. Easton Cade Klima! I'm not sure if John would want me posting a photo of the young man here (though there is one at the blog post linked above), but I can tell you he is cute, and everyone is healthy. Yay for the growing Pop Family!

Third, our very own Melissa Rabey is on the ballot for the 2011 Printz Committee. If you are a member of YALSA, please consider voting for her, because she is made out of awesome. Seriously: unflappable, passionate, knowledgeable, kind, and thoughtful. I am telling you, Melissa is what you're looking for in a Printz Committee member, but you don't have to take my word for it. Read her blog, Librarian By Day, and see for yourself!

Congratulations All Elected ALA Candidates (But Most Especially Carlie Webber)!

The results are in, and our dear friend, colleague, and fellow Pop-er (Pop-ian? Pop-ie? What's the best suffix for us?) Carlie Webber has been elected to YALSA's Michael L. Printz Award Committee. She's the second of our crew (Liz Burns was the first) to attain this honor, and we couldn't be more pleased, more proud, or less surprised (I mean that in the best possible way -- anyone who's met or read Carlie knows what a savvy, tough reader she is).  

Congratulations to all of the winners, and, as a member of the 2009 YALSA Nominating Committee, thanks to everyone who ran this year!  

If you're a member of YALSA, please consider running for office next year!  Info on all available positions is at the YALSA Wiki.
