2015 Librarian Shopping Guide
Welcome to For Librarians, Buy Librarians– my guide to some of my favorite web-based shops run (mostly) by librarians! Originally posted in 2012 I wanted to share this with new fans. This is a Shopping Guide to Etsy Shops (etc) of INALJ fans, their friends and family :)
I am floored by all of the imagination and technical skill. I will be updating this periodically. Most of these shops are run by librarians but some are just ones shared by librarians that they love. HackLibrarySchool has a fab Library Gift Guide on Pinterest and Etsy has a fab list called Etsy Team Librarian you should check out too! h/t Kristin.
And finally the fab guide put together by Sarah: Gift Ideas for Librarians.
Want to get your shop added? Email firstname.lastname@example.org MUST have subject line ADD to GIFT GUIDE or I may not even open it. Thanks!
-Happy shopping everyone- Naomi
