As you can see from our photos, Flowermart 2012 was an absolute blast!  We met so many wonderful people who never had a chance to visit the exquisite Peabody Library before.   Not only did everyone get their fill of rare books, but we also ended up offering on-the-spot database instruction and answered reference questions!  Seriously, how cool is it that people actually want to learn about library resources in the middle of a city festival full of delicious food and local crafts? May us nerds forever unite!
