Nancy Pearl; LJ’s Librarian of the Year

In a profile for the Jan. 15 issue of Library Journal, John Berry says it well, “No one other than Nancy Pearl has so convinced Americans that libraries, books, and reading are critical to our communities.”

We can only add that we particularly love Nancy’s sense of humor. She enjoys making fun of the retro vision of librarians via her action figure’s “amazing shushing action,”  a gesture she’s never used in real life.

May this award help her bring even more attention to the importance of libraries, books and reading.

    She’s not just the librarian of the year, she’s at least librarian of the decade! Such a great example for all of us to follow.
