political shenanigan

bookstore arrangement

This display of books (“Ivanka Trump: Rewriting the Rules for Success” was put together in a bookstore (possibly in California?) by a librarian (according to the “inside knowledge” of a Facebook commenter). Titles in the display include Children of the Self Absorbed, Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents, and No More Narcissists!

Thanks, Simona Mkrtschjan!

“Kiwi the miniature therapy horse was awarded an advanced degree today at UNC Health Sciences Library — a Master of Library Shenanigans.”

(As far as I know, this degree is not affiliated with the Library Shenanigans blog.)

Thanks, Joan Petit!

so many shenanigans

I went on a road trip with my family and a whole bunch of library shenanigans (and one museum shenanigan) piled up.

The Hermitage Museum keeps 74 cats on site to protect its treasures from rodents! Thanks, Anna Bendiksen.

Gloria Gaynor disco party at the Library of Congress in May, yes, this is for real. You know you wish you could go.

 

“Quirky photo project” by Elise Schimke at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

 

The whole collection, back in the vault.

The Folger Shakespeare Library apparently gets pretty cold, but researchers can borrow hand-knit shawls while on site. Thanks, Lynne M. Thomas!

And speaking of library-themed clothing, library book leggings are available from Kickin Leggings (this ad showed up in my Facebook feed, so Facebook isn’t totally useless I guess).

The Librarie Mollat, a bookstore in Bordeaux, France, has been Instagramming images of their employees and customers with book covers. Some of them are so perfectly matched it seems unreal!

Thanks, Tom McBride and Bored Panda.

Valentine’s Day shenanigans

Libraries and librarians never let me down at Valentine’s Day. The Ramsey County Library posted this excellent valentine on their Facebook page:

And the Loyola University Library in Chicago, following the lead of several other libraries, put together a Valentine’s Day display of “blind date” books wrapped in brown paper:

(Thanks, Amy Shuffelton!)
