Thanks to jenett.radio for pointing the way to The Librarian Action Figure! So if you know a librarian, someone involved in IA or a kid who maybe dreams of being one of those… you need to check this out. This super-hero action figure is modeled after Nancy Pearl, influential Director of Library Programming and the Washington Center for the Book at the Seattle Public Library.
“The role of a librarian is to make sense of the world of information. If that’s not a qualification for superhero-dom, what is? - Nancy Pearl”
