Libraries Are For Everyone: Norwegian

Rachael Smith, a super-nice Access Services Associate at Mount Holyoke College , wrote me a squee-worthy email. Within it, she provided me with a Norwegian translation (which reads The Library Is For Everyone). Sven Aas, the Head of Web Services & Application Development at MHC, and his native speaking Norwegian cousins, worked together to come up with this translation.

Sven also shared the following: “There are two national languages in Norway. The translation I’m proposing is in Bokmål, which is the more widely-spoken of the two. I don’t know how the Nynorsk rendering might differ.”

If you’d like a Nynorsk set of signs, then please send the translation my way and I’ll happily add it to this post.

Thank you Rachael, Sven, and his cousins!!!
