Calling all Nerdfighters Librarians!

I was just wondering how many public libraries have nerdfighter clubs? I really want begin a nerdfighter club in one of the public libraries where I work, but as I’m a fairly new employee, and busy with school, I’m nervous to bring it up to my director. Any advice, tips, experiences, or opinions? Nerdfighters who frequent libraries! Would you regularly attend like a monthly Nerdfighter meeting at your local library? If so how old are you?

Help a library person out!

Any awesome tumblarians have advice?

Soooo, someone may or may not have watched a free on demand episode of Outlander on Saturday “just to see what it’s about” and then that same person may have, immediately upon that episode’s end, subscribed to Starz from her remote (instant gratification) and then may have binge watched every episode available thereafter. Someone may have a problem with TV.  
But! Turns out there’s a lot of info of the Jacobite rebellion of 1745 on JSTOR (duh), so I’ve compiled a nifty list of articles should you need something to fill the time between Outlander episodes. Lord knows I do. 
"Some Unrecorded Incidents of the Jacobite Rising," The Celtic Review, 1910
"Jacobite Refugees in Gothenberg After Culloden," The Scottish Historical Review, 1991
"Highland Motives in the Jacobite Rising 1745-46: ‘Forcing Out" Traditional Documentation and Gaelic Poetry," Proceedings of the Harvard Celtic Colloquium, 2000/2001
"Some Notes on Attainted Jacobites," The Scottish Antiquary, or, Northern Notes and Queries, 1891

On this day in 1940, a group of school boys discovered the Lascaux cave paintings in France. Read a very cool account of the discovery in a 1941 issue of The Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland

I would like to take the opportunity this fine Monday morning to thank Tumblr for convincing me to see Captain American 2: The Winter Soldier.
Carry on.

After renting The Winter Soldier last night, I would like to again, extend my gratitude to Tumblr.
