I was so glad to get your e-mail about librarians with attitude. I thought I was alone on that score! I am a Librarian for a local authority in an rural area in the north of England, and since I moved here from a large city 18 months ago, I have certainly felt like an outcast. For a start, people here have a problem with a librarian who doesn't fit their stereotypical librarian image. The first point against me is being too young (25?) Secondly, nose studs and multiple earpiercings do NOT go down well. Tattoos and body piercings are another big no-no. And to cap it all, failure to wear a navy skirt, a 'nice' cream blouse and little court shoes has sealed my fate!
