Have you hugged your librarian lately? Well these days that may get you in trouble, but you can still show them your appreciation through a well-chosen gift. April 10-16 is Library Week so there’s no better time to recognize their hard work. “Check out” these gifts for librarians.
Liebrary Board Game - Think it’s easy to write a great opening sentence for a novel? Your librarian will be able to give it a shot with the Liebrary board game, $32.50 from Uncommon Goods. After hearing the author, book title and synopsis, each player must then write the first line of the book. Players get points for choosing the correct sentence and for tricking others with their literary skills.
Antiquarian Bookplates - Bookplates may seem like an old fashion tradition, but they’re a great way to keep tabs on your personal library. For $11.69 your librarian will receive a varied collection of antique-looking bookplates to stick inside their book covers. That way they’ll feel better about loaning out titles from their home collection.
I Love Reading Socks - Any book lover will enjoy these novelty socks—including librarians. They’re unisex and made to fit a wide range of ladies and men. Pick up a pair for $8.99 at AbsoluteSocks.com.
Librarian Action Figure - Librarians don’t ever get portrayed as cool characters in books and movies, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get their own action figure. Head to Stupid.com for this very smart gift. It’s $9.99 and includes amazing push-button shushing action. Don’t you think this toy is long overdue?
Personal Library Kit - Chances are passionate librarians would love to have the same organization at home with their personal library as they do at work. The Personal Library Kit, $15 from Urban Outfitters, comes with relics of libraries gone by including circulation cards and date stamps. Late fees are up to them.
