Lego librarians!

See the rest and read all about Joe Hardenbrook’s views on the public perception of librarians here.

Image, Public Perception, and Lego Librarians

I love seeing how the public and the media portray librarians. Whether it’s theshushing/conservative stereotype“naughty librarian” stereotypeunder-appreciated & over-worked public servant (this one is NSFW-but one of my faves!), dealing with inept patrons, or even ones that combine the brainy stereotype with sexiness – I eat it up. I wonder if accountants or architects feel the same way when they see their field portrayed?

Entering Pop Culture

So, how do we know when librarians have hit the big time? Lego has introduced a Lego Librarian – part of its minifigures series line. This line of minifigures is an eclectic group. Series #10, which the librarian belongs to, also includes awarrior womansad clown, and a paintball player among others. In fact, the librarian is the only viable career option in the set! How cool is that?

There are 150+ minifigures, only about 10 require a college degree, so the librarian is in rare company!
