"Libraries are a force for good. They wear capes. They fight evil. They don’t get upset when you don’t send them a card on their birthdays. (Though they will charge you if you’re late returning a book.) They serve communities. The town without a library is a town without a soul. The library card is a passport to wonders and miracles, glimpses into other lives, religions, experiences, the hopes and dreams and strivings of ALL human beings, and it is this passport that opens our eyes and hearts to the world beyond our front doors, that is one of our best hopes against tyranny, xenophobia, hopelessness, despair, anarchy, and ignorance. Libraries are the torch of the world, illuminating the path when it feels too dark to see. We mustn’t allow that torch to be extinguished."
"Librarians are well known for sneaking in books by dangerous authors. In 1988, two copies of “Pride and Prejudice” were found in Night Vale. No one knows quite how many people read these copies, but the ensuing riots inconvenienced hundreds and led to the current cleaning schedule."
I just hung up a ton of posters to promote my October project. We’re asking patrons to send in a selfie with their favorite book and then we’re going to share the pictures online & maybe make some into read posters. I love the ones staff sent in last month and I’m excited to see what the patrons send!
I also decided to do some passive RA with the posters, which I’m pretty proud of.

If I worked in children’s services, you can bet your bottom dollar I would hang up this poster from the Gravity Falls Public Library.
