Are you a librarian? Interested in a makeover? Better head down under.
Style queen Paula Ryan will run a workshop at the national library conference this month, offering tips on how to transform their "conservative and dated image".
New Zealand's Sunday Star Times reports: In an email to librarians on Wednesday, the Library and Information Association's communications co-ordinator Megan Mathieson said the workshop was "a not-to-be-missed opportunity to be inspired and challenged by New Zealand's pre-eminent style guru".
"Librarians," she says, "have a very conservative and dated image: if we want to transform our profession then surely we must start by transforming ourselves?"
Would American librarians want someone to come to the next ALA conference and do makeovers?
