So what happens when 6 librarians who only know one another from the internets get together? And will it make a good premise for a reality TV show? Those were the questions answered at Monday night’s first ever Mass librarian tweetup.
So, what do librarians talk about over drinks? The answer turned out to be tv (particulary reality shows and Dr. Who), what books people had on them (as well as how many), Germany, decorative bedding options, Jasper Fforde, Netflix, the awesomeness of the sadly absent @helgagrace, Wuthering Heights, #unimerpandas, cataloging, beer, careers, enormous piles of nachos, romance novels, and most other subjects.
All in all, one of the best conversations I’ve had in ages. And I love that people are already talking about doing this again. Next time perhaps with name tags, although it was fun playing spot the librarians (look for confused looking people trying to recognize each other by their profile avatars).
