So I’ve been chewing on this idea, an idea that incorporates my fascination with natural hair, books, and libraries all at the same time. I think the inspiration for this idea came from Oyin Handmade, Black Library Girl, and also Library Wardrobe. I call my idea Highly Textured Librarian.
Being highly textured in this instance means more than having kinks and curls, it also is a reference to books and intelligence. The librarian part is self-explanatory but a better label might be information professional, because I’d like paraprofessionals, library students, and volunteers to also be included in my idea. Highly Textured Information Professional doesn’t have the same ring though.
I still haven’t explained the idea yet. What I’d like to do is have a monthly post where I feature one person in libraryland who wears their hair naturally – and by naturally I mean kinky/curly hair that hasn’t been relaxed. Each person featured would answer three standard questions and a bonus one; and also submit a few pictures of their hair, influential books, and maybe one in a library setting.
I’m still working out the
kinks bugs on my idea, but you get the gist, right?
So who wants to be my guinea pig? 🙂
