Celebrating Our Own / LISNews Author Andy W's a Mover & Shaker

Congratulations Andy!!!! From Library Journal:

Flavor of the Month Move over, Cherry Garcia. If Andy Woodworth has his way, the next hot Ben & Jerry's flavor could be Gooey Decimal System.

The 32-year-old adult services librarian at Bordentown Library, NJ, Woodworth is creator of “People for a Library Themed Ben & Jerry's Flavor” a Facebook group he started in June 2009 that's mushroomed to more than 8000 members and quickly gained international media and blogging attention. (It's been picked up by Andrew Sullivan's Daily Dish, The New Yorker's The Book Bench blog, Britain's The Guardian, and even the United Arab Emirates newspaper, The National.)

But don't be fooled. Woodworth's project has a hidden agenda—it's part of a multipronged advocacy effort to get libraries noticed, appreciated, and funded.

I don't care what the name of the winning flavor is...but it's GOT TO have chocolate.


Sometimes it pays to remember that the simplest ideas sometimes hold the greatest promise, after reading this article in LibraryJournal.com I am again inspired to be the best librarian I can be. What have I learned, Librarians promote their libraries with great ideas, I am a librarian, therefore I also have great ideas! I just need to tap into those ideas, bend and shape them to my environment and promote them to growth!

Definitely chocolate and maybe spicy. At least my local librarians have a bit of spice to them. They have to, to put up with the kids that seem to spend all day in there on the computer. lol

Congratulations Andy
