#amonthinthelife- Day 21

My library, like every other library in Australia has been nominated as Australia’s Favourite Library .We are all doing our best to plug and campaign to get as many votes as possible through on campus or in-house campaigns and taking it to the virtual streets with social media.

And this is where it gets funny. A lot of my friends on Twitter, and readers of this blog are librarians, all of whom are no doubt also campaigning for their library. When I made the mention of it on Facebook, a former colleague replied, no vote for MY library. It’s the beginning of #librarywars.

Maybe next year ALIA should do library games in the form of the Hunger Games. 12 librarians battle it out to the death for library supremacy in a big library. They will encounter obstacles and monsters drawn from works of popular literature, like the Jabberwocky, or Voldemort, and the last librarian standing will be crowned as Australia’s best librarian. Or not…
