My, how time flies! This week, we celebrate the second anniversary of Reel Librarians. 😀
And even though we turn two, there have been a lot of firsts and milestones this year, including:
- Responding to readers’ questions in this Q&A post
- Throwing down the gauntlet in a reel librarian trivia challenge
- Peeking behind the curtain in a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into a film analysis post
- Feeling the love with an in-depth interview + an additional feature on INALJ.com, plus a shout-out on American Libraries Direct
And there’s another first in store, to help celebrate — the first Reel Librarians giveaway! Remember this past summer, when my husband and I scored our very own Lego Librarian? We also were able to score ANOTHER Lego Librarian, and I had the idea of saving it for a celebratory giveaway. Now that time has come! 😀
This giveaway for your very own Lego Librarian will be open until Sept. 26, 2013, at midnight, which will mark a full week after this site’s second-year anniversary. This giveaway is also open to international readers, and I will personally cover shipping costs. The winner will be chosen at random, and I will contact the winner by email soon after the giveaway closes. (Please note that the comment box requires an email address, but this info is not open to the general public.)
- Submit a comment below with your favorite reel librarian movie, and why. (Stumped for options? Check out my Reel Substance section here or the Master List here, or perhaps my own Best & Worst lists.)
