  1. Greetings Justin,

    My name is Rob Colding and I work for Information Today, Inc. We publish books for librarians and information professionals. We have a book coming out this week entitled, “Everyone Plays at the Library: Creating Great Gaming Experiences for All Ages” by Scott Nicholson.

    One of my authors [Sophie Brookover] suggested I reach out to you to see if you were interested in reviewing Scott’s book. I notice that in your blog profile you mention that you would cover video games and ‘library stuff.’ I believe that Scott’s book may be of some interest to you and your readers. If you would like to see more information about Scott’s book, Here is the link:

    If you would like to receive a review copy, my contact information is listed below. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hey Justin -
    I am a librarian who freelances as a screen printer. Just made (wht I think is) an awesome t-shirt in support of the librarians in Wisconsin. I am hoping that you can help me get the word out. $1 of every t-shirt sold will go to the Wisconsin Library Association Foundation. You can view it at http://www.etsy.com/listing/70372154/i-am-a-librarian-and-a-thug-t-shirt. Hope you like it!

    Just saw on your profile that you are in Portland. I am in Washington and am doing a fundraiser with Library students in Portland to raise money for SCALA. Their shirt and tote bag are at http://www.etsy.com/shop/LibrarianDesigns?ref=top_trail. Please spread the word in their support. Thanks.
