Read Like Rory Gilmore

Unless you live under a rock, or do not know any female between the ages of 15 and 45, you probably know that Netflix hosted a revival of the 2000s classic Gilmore Girls. The revival, officially called Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, aired on Thanksgiving weekend and most people I know dedicated full days of their holiday weekend to binge watch the mini series.

I won’t go into details about the show (but holy cliffhanger!), but I will brag about my awesome way to incorporate the library into the Gilmore Girls hullabaloo.

Again, unless you live under a rock, you are aware that Rory Gilmore is a voracious reader. I found many a Rory Gilmore Reading challenge checklist online, so I printed one out, and looked for as many of the 300+ as I could find. I then printed out a fresh list and several pictures of Rory Gilmore reading and called it a display.

Surprisingly, a few of the books have gotten checked out! I was afraid none would circulate since they’re mostly school/homework type books, but so far I’ve been pleasantly surprised. For those curious, I’ve read 79 of 339. Bad Librarian.

It’s (not) Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

If you live in Minnesota you know that this winter is very strange. We’ve had so much rain! But very little snow. It’s gross. Anyway, the warm weather and lack of snow is definitely causing a distinct lack of Christmas spirit. I remember last year I decided around this time that I wanted to listen to a Christmas themed audio book, but they were all checked out! With multiple holds!

This year, however, the vast majority of our Christmas related books (audio, fiction, cook books, picture books etc) are still on the shelf or in displays.

It’s really kind of fascinating to see how the weather affects our reading habits.
