What is Unusual Librarians Who Rock?
Unusual Librarians Who Rock (ULWR) is an on-going series about librarians…who are unusual in some way…and who rock…pretty self-explanatory. Living or dead, fictional or non, it’s nice to have role models who inspire and make us root for our fellow librarian.
Every profession has role models that either got them into their job or help make the job fun. Police have Barney Fife, Joe Friday, and the entire cast of Law & Order and Police Academy. Doctors have House, Scrubs, ER and so on. Any lawyer who didn’t get into law because of Jack Mccoy or Perry Mason is a straight-up liar. Us librarians, we have Batgirl, Indiana Jones, and many more.
