1. Shushed.

    Thanks to everyone that came out to the inaugural Librarians Like Noise show. 

    Steve Kemple is giving a talk tomorrow about the experimental noise shows he has been doing at Cincinnati Public Library. Read up on his ideas here.

    Expect more noise at ALA in the future. It’s all the rage!

     
  2. Wouldn’t have ended it any other way!!!

     
     
  3. Alright, librarians. Spread the word. This is gonna be totally insane, totally unsanctioned, and totally rad. There’s still room for more performers, so if you’re a noise-making library worker, and you’ll be in Chicago for ALA, send an email to stevekemple at gmail dot com and be all like “hey I wanna perform” and I’ll be all like “heck yeah let’s do it!”
