Some of you may recognize this idea as I shared it in the Hafuboti eNewsletter vol. 4 – it got such a good response that I felt it should be shared with a wider audience. It’s one of those things that, having been at a small library for over a decade now, was so shockingly… Continue reading Dry Erase Reserve Slips
You may get an odd sense of déjà vu while you read this post, and there’s good reason for it: I’ve shared this information previously in my 2017 Décor Themes post. I’m revisiting this since my LEGO-themed posts are unsurprisingly some of the most popular pins on Pinterest. I also wanted to write a bit… Continue reading LEGO MAY-nia 5: The Battle for the Planet of the LEGOs
Last year, Jonathan, the Scholarly Communications and Digital Librarian at The University of New Mexico’s Health Sciences Library & Informatics Center, sent a very kind email asking about vector versions of my #LAFE designs. We had a nice email exchange – though I was unable to help since I was still a novice at vector… Continue reading #LAFE Vectors
A lot has been going on in Nebraska and the US involving censorship of all sorts. Especially in the library-world. And as a white cisgender heteronormative LGBTQ+ ally – I am angry. And as a library worker – I am angry. And I’m someone who has struggled with being verbally abusive throughout my life. If… Continue reading The Rainbow Sower
John Lee used the Submit a Translation form on the #LAFE Library page to send me the Ho-Chunk translation. Yay! They even broke down the meaning: waagax hakiruxara – bookhociira – the houseshanąąc – everyonewagi’ųire – they made it for them Thank you very much, John Lee!!!
I felt moved to make these.
Please download, use, and share any or all of these designs.

This post features the final work from our lovely Natasia who has moved on to a full-time library job where she doesn’t get to show off her art skills, but she does get things like healthcare and better pay. Ahem. Natasia brought limitless creativity and beauty to our community. Those things will still be a… Continue reading 2020 CHILDREN’S LIBRARY THEMES
An Ohio school librarian, a student, and the student’s grandparent all worked to get me this translation. They all wanted to remain anonymous. Thank you so much for working together to help spread the LAFE message! In case you were wondering: Akan and Twi are essentially the same. The grandparent compared their differences to that… Continue reading Libraries Are For Everyone: Akan & Twi
It’s a new translation from an awesome Peruvian musician Tayta Bird via Sarah Prokop, founder of Librarians Unite For Equal Rights. I hope to someday book both of them for an epic library dance party program. Seriously. Thank you, Tayta Bird and Sarah!!!
Awesome librarian Jessica spoke with Dakota tribal elder Glenn Wasicuna, and he provided us with the Dakota translation of Libraries Are For Everyone. Thank you to Jessica and especially Glenn Wasicuna!!!
While going through thousands of files in my quest to rebuild my blog, I came across one of the very first images that I created when I began overseeing our Children’s Library in 2013. This was either one of my earliest Photoshopped images, or it was built with either Word or Publisher. Yes, you can… Continue reading Storytimepalooza!

Until things settle back down, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or requests: firstname.lastname@example.org I truly appreciate your patience with this… Continue reading Where Is HAFUBOTI?!
