Tips from Marian T. Librarian

to get the most out of your Rural Libraries Conference

Tip #1

Dress Casual. As someone who has attended all the conferences I SAY dress casual. The first few years I wore three inch heels and almost killed myself. “Birkies” are best but any comfortable shoe will do.

Dress in Layers. This is Michigan and at most Rural conferences the weather goes from spring to fall to winter and back to winter. I wear a cute yellow polka dot bikini, then a T-shirt, then a turtleneck and a sweater and parka. I’m prepared for everything you be too.

So, I am a bit confused about the spelling of your first name. Since I like things to be tidy in my mind, can you clarify? Also, will there be a nice pool at RLC for swimming? I have a fetching purple tie dyed bikini myself ;-)

Please, please, please: when mentioning bikini's of any color, please include a picture to help me understand better...

My name is spelled Marian, but Marion is okay if people are comfortable with it. We are very laid back here in Lake Neverwuz.

Another tip for the conference: Bring along examples of some of your PR. Other rural librarians will be interested to see what you've done. Sharing is very important at this conference. I won't be able to bring the PR piece we did for Summer Reading this year. With the Paws, Claws, etc theme we had the side of a cow painted with the Summer Reading poster and she paraded up and down Main street most of the summer. Unfortunately she met her fate at the annual Lake Neverwuz Barbeque last weekend. But I do have pictures.

Marian! My apologies! Some guy named Roger sent me a file with your name spelled "marion" :)

Dear Marion,

I love your fashion ideas. I can't wait to see you in your bikini and "Birkies." See you at the pool for swimming!!!

Oh, sorry to hear about the cow. Did you enjoy the BQ?
