Keeping up with the Librarians: New Zealand librarians gets inspired by the Kardashians

A post by the Invercargill City Libraries and Archives of New Zealand went viral. Six librarians posed for a photoshoot inspired by the Hollywood Reporter cover with the Kardashian family celebrating the 10th year of their reality-TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians. Check out the photo below and the original cover:

Their post caption reads: "It has been 10 years since the Kardashians first graced our screens. To celebrate, our social media team decided to have a totally impromptu, definitely not planned, photo-shoot." As of this writing, the post has about 9,300 likes and has been shared for nearly 4,000 times.

The post got both positive and negative reactions but it was done all in the name of good fun. This library has also created fun content to promote the library in other ways. Its great to see librarians using their creativity and promote their libraries at the same time.

I hope we Filipino librarians also get a clue from them. Even our simple posts or promotions for library events or conferences should be attractive and written in an interesting way, since most of the time they are boring and uninteresting! Let's change the common stereotype of librarians being boring, strict, and old-fashioned uninteresting people one small way at a time.
