Where Is HAFUBOTI?!

Where Is HAFUBOTI?!

Due to a series of very unfortunate events, I’m needing to recreate Hafuboti from the ground up. Currently the only thing available on this site is the #LAFE Library. Until things settle back down, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or requests: [email protected] I truly appreciate your patience with this…

THE FOOL

THE FOOL

Back in 2014 I had a moment in my life where I could almost literally feel the change in my life’s path. I was sitting in a Rheumatologist’s exam room, and he had informed me that I was the poster child for Fibromyalgia. He gave me some reading material and said he’d give me and…

Even More Signs

Even More Signs

Okay, so it turned out that my three part new sign series has a fourth part. What can I say? I rebel against…uh, numbers? Along with our directional and informational signs from 2015, I realized that our “rules” signs also needed a refresh. BEFORE: AFTER: In the After picture, the library images behind the children…

Cat Fans

Cat Fans

Before last year’s Kitty Café I had an idea. You see, it tends to get pretty hot in our small meeting room during this event, even if we pump up the A/C beforehand. So it’d be nice to have fans to give to people. And, in the way my mind works, I came up with…

A Great Update

A Great Update

Besides recently giving our library’s community space a much needed update, I’ve also been trying to make our office a bit nicer. I share this office with Jennifer, our Children’s Librarian, and it’s pretty much the hub for the rest of our team. The doorway leading out to the circulation desk has had its share…

Book End Cozy Redux

Book End Cozy Redux

This is the third, and final, sign revamp post. Here is part one and part two in case you missed them. As I went to look for my post on what I call “book end cozies,” I realized that my first post about them was buried in a holiday post. Oops. And at the beginning…

A Legacy of #LAFE

A Legacy of #LAFE

It is hard for me to fully express what the Libraries Are For Everyone campaign has meant to me. Hitting 100 languages this week has really made me pause and reflect on this experience. When I’ve been asked to talk about it, I find that I can’t because it is so deeply moving to me,…

Libraries Are For Everyone: Punjabi

Punjabi is the 100th language into which Libraries Are For Everyone has been translated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I must give a HUGE thank you to everyone who made the effort to supply me with translations. I truly couldn’t have done this without you. I have a special post coming up to help commemorate this because you’re not here…

Libraries Are For Everyone: Yapese

Libraries Are For Everyone: Yapese

Back in September of last year, I was sent three translations from Jennifer, an elementary school librarian in Washington. Two parents of students, and one student had provided new translations of #LAFE for me. This Yapese translation was provided by Jacklyn Famaw. Thank you, both Jennifer and Jacklyn, for both the translation and your patience…
