Seen on the Metro

Previous Features
As this blog has grown and changed, certain features have been retired. These posts are still tagged and available in the archives.

BOOLEAN (Bookish Ones Only Like Exceedingly Awesome Nylons)
This group encouraged people to don "exceedingly awesome" leg-wear whether they be tights, leggings, stockings, pantyhose, nylons, socks, or other leg covering fashion (toe nail polish, too!). The group was founded on February 10, 2011 after I wore a pair of fun tights to work. I posted a picture on Facebook and received lots of comments on the zaniness of my stockings. Friend, fellow librarian, and group co-founder Katie B. commented, "Mine are blue! Great minds think alike!" We decided to form a group and "give ourselves an absurd acronym." As we are both librarians, that acronym was library related.

BOOLEAN was born.

The tights that started it all.
BOOLEAN - Friday Fashion Find
A weekly post that showcased an exceptionally awesome BOOLEAN find.

On the Job
A series of job advice posts about making work "work." These posts included tips, hints, and personal experience advice aimed toward library employees and new(er) supervisors.
