Library News, Reviews, and Views
Sudler Redon of Columbus Metropolitan Library’s Northern Lights Branch (OH)* has trouble convincing patrons he’s not one of them. Is it something he’s wearing?
(For more from myself and fellow LJ editor Norman Oder on the long-deserved crushing of ye olde librarian/library worker stereotype, read this, this, and this.)
*correction: Redon works at Columbus Metropolitan Lib.’s Northern Lights Branch (OH)—not in Alberta’s Northern Lights Lib. Syst., as originally stated.
This is why dress codes were invented…because some employees don’t understand the concept of dressing appropriately or professionally and ruin it for the rest of us who have a little common sense. I am all for personal style, but a t-shirt featuring a tab of acid is over the line.
WOW Real Smart Marta … If you zoom in on the picture you will notice that isn’t Acid on the shirt it’s actually a STAMP of the company’s label(LRG). Some people leave stupid comment’s because they have no life.. you must be one of them.lol
Thats a cool T-shirt its a very rare LRG, I actually tried to buy one online but I got outbid. I’ll give you $75.00 for it if you cant wear it to work anymore contact me @email@example.com
I actually think that dressing somewhat casually brings ease to work and makes you want to show up to your job! Having too many rules in the workplace creates a boring atmosphere and takes away from the good aspects of a job!
I work with Sudler at COLUMBUS METROPOLITAN LIBRARY’S Northern Lights Branch – we are not in Alberta! Sudler’s style makes him approachable, and customers think he is the greatest – they call him “King.”
