San Jose Mercury News – “One local librarian called “on behalf of 10 others” to question the description. But it didn’t end there. The Internet is a far-reaching thing, stretching into libraries across the globe, which linked the story to the American Library Association electronic newsletter. Oh, boy. Heather Bistyga, a reference librarian in Greenville, S.C., eloquently put us in our place for perpetuating “an unfortunate stereotype about librarians.”
Mary Schmidt – “Little Old Ladies and Libraries. Wouldnâ€™t it seem weâ€™d be safe making some assumptions? Sedate. Quiet. Polite. Old-fashioned.”
USA Today – “It’s enough to make librarians kick up their heels.”
I don’t wear heels and I’m a librarian. Stereotypes, Stereotypes. Will the MSM ever learn?
