ON a Sunday night last month at Daddy’s, a bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, more than a dozen people in their 20s and 30s gathered at a professional soiree, drinking frozen margaritas and nibbling store-bought cookies. With their thrift-store inspired clothes and abundant tattoos, they looked as if they could be filmmakers, Web designers, coffee shop purveyors or artists.

Of course, you can tell from the title … they are librarians.

Ms. Campbell added that she became a librarian because it “combined a geeky intellectualism” with information technology skills and social activism. [A Hipper Crowd of Shushers – New York Times]
