Unusual Librarians Who Rock Returns! Really, really, Unusual…


You guys almost thought I wasn’t going to post this week, didn’t you? Take that, naysayers and Debbie Doubters.

This episode of ULWR is brought to you by The Edinburgh Evening News and my Brash Sidekick, Katy. The Evening news just reported on a pole dancing class at the Mayfield Library in Scotland to help kick off and promote Love Your Library Day on February 2nd. Read the article here!

Yes, you heard me right. Pole dance instructor Nikki Clark will offer a free, 90-minute pole fitness session on the day at Mayfield Library and is encouraging anyone over 16 who is keen to get fit and have some fun to take part. While not a librarian herself, Clark is a mother of two and said, “The library is a fantastic place – there’s not many places now where kids can go that is free and get books and use the computer. Anything we can do to support that can only be a good thing.”

Pole instructor Nikki Clark demonstrating her skill as she browses the library’s newest best sellers. I’m getting my Scottish library card tomorrow.

There will also be arts, crafts, video games and something for everyone coming up. While pole dancing might be a little risque for your library, don’t be afraid to try new things! Start up a new program, bring in something a little different or unorthodox. Heck, even try having book club at your favorite bar! BE BRASH! If somebody complains, tell them to come see me!

(Brash Librarian assumes no liability for shenanigans incurred.)

Speaking of fun and different! If you are near the Gainesville area, come check out the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire this weekend (January 26-27th) and next weekend (February 2-3rd) at the Alachua County Fairgrounds! There will be jousting! Combat! Magic! Comedy! Horses! Knights! Maidens! Wizards! Turkey legs! Mead! Don’t forget the Bookaneer will also be singing with the wenches!

Don’t forget! Subscribe here and to the Brash Librarian Facebook page, or just add me personally if you’re feeling bold. Now get out there and be Brash!

Justin Brasher, Brash Librarian

    Your local library is always looking for new programs for the community, so don’t be afraid to call and ask them about starting one!

    And HUZZAH for the Medieval Faire! The other wenches and I in Just Desserts (facebook.com/justdessertswenches) can’t wait to perform!
