Not always buns and sensible shoes, librarians at various types of libraries have different styles (and dress codes). Check it out here or submit your own.

This is it! Final #ala2013 post. These are all from the EveryLibrary + Librarian Wardrobe After Hours Party! Big thanks to John Chrastka and everyone at EveryLibrary for working with us to make this party a huge success. If you happened to pick up a free LW patch, consider donating some $$ to EL. Patch with a purpose.

Also big thanks to our Emcees and Judges for hosting and werkin it. And thanks to everyone who came! Obviously the parties are no fun without you. Apologies to anyone who waited in line and was unable to make it in. It is very difficult to find a central venue that allows for a large capacity without charging a ton of money (that we don’t have). We have plans to make the party more accessible for #ala2014.

And here we go….

John Chrastka, @mrchrastka: Executive Director, EveryLibrary and your badass cohost for the evening.
