  1. Happy birthday, and I love the photo. You look about three years old?

    Clicking through, I see the photo is in your mom’s Flickr stream which is so cool. I like this one, too.

  2. Happy Birthday,

    Those first books are so important to us. My husband and I drove past the first library that my mom took me to on a trip across country last year.

    I also wanted to let you know that I really likt the links you provide from your blog.

  3. Happy Birthday, Jessamyn. I am a Virgo too, and I would like to be turning 38! My b-day (in 2 weeks) is my 50th.
    Loved the picture…reminded me of myself (the hair style, the sweater, the book).
    I am glad to know you!

  4. Happy Birthday Jessamyn. I hope you have many happy more. Mine is later this month, maybe I’ll see you then!

  5. Happy Birthday, Jessamyn! The photo is wonderful – you are definitely a born librarian!

  7. gelukkige verjaardag!

    That’s how they wish happy birthday in Dutch. You’ve been doing great work and are a constant source of inspiration for those of in the stacks.

    You don’t look a day over four.

  8. catching up on my feeds here… :) Happy (belated) Birthday! Virgo is the sign of the librarian. Librarian is the coolest job in the world.

  9. Hey Jessamyn, happy happy birthday!!!!! wish Shinjoung and I could be there to help you celebrate. many happy returns on the day (as Winnie the Pooh used to say ;-) )


  10. Happy B-lated Birthday!

    In our family, we do English first, then Portugese “Parabens Para Voce,” (roughly translated: congratulations) and if I’m around, Polish, “Sto Lat” (literally, one hundred years.) “Sto Lat” is also sung at civic events, like when the Poles elected Lech Walesa as their president.


  11. Happy belated birthday Jessamyn. Oddly enough, we share the day, though I turned 40. :)

    I only started reading your blog recently – thank you for it.
