Double Life: On-call librarian is also artist and musician

“If you have ever called a library’s after-hours number with a question, the person on the other end of the line could have been Carrboro artist and musician Phil Blank.Blank runs a company called ChatStaff, which provides after-hours service to libraries all over North Carolina and beyond. But he’s also a painter, illustrator and accordion player for a local klezmer band, Gmish.In fact, you might have seen his paintings on the walls at Orange County Social Club or his illustrations on the new bags of Larry’s Beans’ single origin coffee now on shelves at Earth Fare, Whole Foods or Weaver Street Market stores. And you might have heard his music while wandering in downtown Carrboro and stumbling upon a klezmer band busking on a street corner.” (via The State)
