10 of the Coolest Librarians Alive


Audrey Barbakoff

Barbakoff, a librarian at Bainbridge Island Library and one of Library Journal’s 2013 Movers and Shakers, takes community outreach to the next level, targeting 20- and 30-somethings. She put together a “speed friending” night, a DIY series called “Radical Home Economics,” and Ferry Tales, a “floating book group” that takes place on the Bainbridge Island–Seattle commuter ferry. She’s also in this.
