Oh My Beverly Cleary!

I owe <a href=”https://twitter.com/renatasnacks” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>@renatasnacks</a> a thank you for giving this post its title – it’s part of what she tweeted in response to what I’m sharing here. Which is something that I made for <a href=”https://twitter.com/bunnybrarian” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>@bunnybrarian</a>. If you don’t follow or friend or whatever other librarians on any social network, then you’re missing out on some <em>wonderful</em> relationships. These relationships have inspired me oodles both professionally and personally.

And speaking of wonderful relationships, there are fabulous&nbsp;female relationships in a comic series called <em>Lumberjanes</em>. It’s quirky, fun, and full of ladies kickin’ all sorts of booty. The first trade&nbsp;is out and deserves a place in your library’s graphic novel collection. Each issue the <em>Lumberjanes</em> earn a special badge that appears on the back cover that relates to something they accomplished within the story. I love reading the comic and then flipping it over to see the new badge. And yes, sometimes I peek at the badge before reading.

Anywho, all this leads to @bunnybrarian commenting that she had just gotten hushed at a librarian conference. I think that being hushed is something that happens to a<em> lot</em> of librarians out there (me for sure). And I responded to her that there should be a special <em>Lumberjane</em> badge for this. She responded that maybe I should make one.

And I did:

I really unabashedly adore this. I shared it on several social media sites, but wanted to be sure that it had a more permanent place on my blog. And as always, feel free to use this for yourself or your library. Or go out, read <em>Lumberjanes</em> if you haven’t already (reread it if you have), and <em>then</em> come back and download this badge.
