Librarians see themselves as the guardians of the First Amendment… I wouldn’t mess with them. I really didn’t realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous group.
— Michael Moore, after outraged librarians saved his book
To celebrate our profession’s revolutionary approach toward freedom of expression,
I have created a new product line*
at the Librarian Avengers store, featuring the Revolutionary Librarian
. She’s a deadpan librarian, wielding the Flaming Stamp of justice. You can get her on a coffee cup, shirt, or on some glossy cards to send to your nettlesome patrons. Yes, those are knitting needles in her hair.
*As usual, all proceeds go toward the Erica family “mortgage and random charities” fund
I’ve upgraded the Librarian Avengers shop, and cleaned up the products and metadata.
Because EVERYONE LOVES CLEAN METADATA!
Check it out.
Hooray! There’s some new t-shirts over at the Librarian Avengers Store. Because if you are like me, you are frantically looking for holiday presents when you should be working.
That’s it. I’m done. Everyone is getting PowerSquids for Christmas this year.
Buy a t-shirt.
Yeah. I couldn’t resist. You know how we’ve had all of this discussion lately about, er… attractive librarians and the Halloween costumes that celebrate them? So I was thinking, what would REALLY bring those reluctant readers in to the library?
Imagine a neon sign buzzing, zapping and blinking: “Librarians! Librarians! Librarians!” The library lights up outside with lurid pinks and greens. Imagine the untapped audiences of potential patrons! Imagine the circulation statistics! Imagine the improved wages once people start tipping.
Of course, a sign like this might keep away the homeschoolers, but you can’t make everyone happy, right?
Right. Hope you enjoy these ever-so-tasteful librarian t-shirts, heat-printed on a black cotton shirt.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! If you’re in town, stop by for spanokopeta and yamfries!
In case there was any doubt:
“Librarianship, Profession of the Overeducated”
As always, proceeds go to the “Librarian’s mortgage” fund, where they will go toward the Actual Mortgage of a Real Librarian.
