Browsing through Twitter this morning I came across this London trend #replaceawordwithlibrarian.
I think it has something to do with a campaign to save libraries.
Whatever the reason for it, some of the tweets make lovely reading:
like Holly Bodger’s
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a librarian.
or Philip Ardagh’s
The name’s Bond. Librarian Bond.
Joking aside, all efforts to keep libraries open and free to their users are vital. A local library is a treasure-house of knowledge, thought and entertainment available to rich and poor alike.
Closing one now may save a few pounds; restocking and reopening it in the future would cost thousands. Short-termism is always more expensive in the long term.
