Hi, My name is Michelle and I am the Systems Specialist & Network Cataloging Librarian for the CLAMS library network. I work at the central site for the consortia (all but 1 academic are public libraries) located on Cape Cod and the Islands in Massachusetts. Pictured with me is my 1 year old Chihuahua, Mojo. In this photo I am wearing my usual outfit: dark colored top, jeans, and converse all stars. We are in front of our town’s Little Free Library on the beach. There are 9 of these awesome little free libraries found in each village where I live. Sorry it is so dark but there is not much light there at night.Thanks! View high resolution

I am wearing a brooch today, which is so librarian-ish, and I’m having a good hair day. Had to take an office-selfie for Librarian Wardrobe!

Robin Brenner, Reference & Teen Librarian, Brookline Public Library, Brookline Massachuetts
As you all already caught me at ALA Midwinter, and I’ve been meaning to submit for a while, I thought I’d finally organize and send in my most recognizable attribute: my shoes!
I am known for loving vintage style (fascinators have been known to appear on my head at the Reference Desk), but my shoes are my real weakness, or strength, depending on how you look at it.  Here are an assortment of many of my winter favorites, Brady Brunch style.  My current roster of shoes live under my desk at work, except those Batgirl sneakers, which are, of course, what I wear when I walk around Boston (unless it’s snowing, then I break out the winter boots.)

My fiance (who has worked as a library assistant while in school) and I took our engagement photos at the Boston Public Library. While we took our outfits up a notch for these pictures, it’s not much of a stretch from our average work-wear. (I have worn this dress to work many times and get lots of compliments.)
