  2. Set your calendars. Tell your friends. Reblog for your followers. Library Journal and Tumblr are joining forces, with the help of Togather, to host an ALA meetup to end all meetups.
Important facts:
Tumblarians are librarians on Tumblr. It’s a big community, folks. Read more about it over at LJ.
There will be free wine & beer.
We’ll also have a raffle! Prizes includes signed advance copies of Richard Dawkins’s An Appetite for Wonder (Harper, Oct.) and LIBBANANAS.
It’s right before & at the same location—Local 22—as the Librarian Wardrobe/EveryLibrary party.
You can RSVP on Facebook and add it to your ALA Scheduler!
Official hashtag is #laserfingers. Make tumblarians known across platforms: tweet, tumbl, and Instagram the event.
So excited to see you all then!

Pretty medieval manuscript of the day is a lovely decorated initial from a fourteenth century manuscript produced in England.

I love the way this letter looks like an amoeba or space.

This is not a filter or a spaceship. This is the fourth floor of Seattle Public.

Stephanie is lying, she is 100% in space right now.
