February is Library Lovers month! I’m pretty sure that there is no one who loves your library more than your local librarian, so we thought we’d list a few great ideas of ways to say thank you to your favorite Librarian. <3
As a kid, I was mesmerized by the enormity of my local library and how the store was routinely stocked with all of my favorite books. My librarian as a child was a sweet, elderly woman named Nancy. Every time I would enter the library, she would greet me with freshly made cookies and a recommended new book. She introduced me to the book that would later mold my career aspirations. By encouraging me to search for comfort in books, Nancy inspired me to read with an open mind and think critically.
Jobs as a librarian are very rewarding. Librarians encourage all individuals, regardless of social and economic background, to embrace their bookworm qualities. In some ways, libraries serve as the general people’s university while librarians act as the professors. Plus, it must be nice as a librarian to have first dibs on hot titles and early released books.
As perusers of libraries, we constantly ask for recommendations and assistance in the quest to find our books. Why not give back by purchasing a fabulous present for your favorite librarian? Even your librarian needs some loving in February. Here’s a list of our top five favorite gifts.
Book Lover’s 2016 Calendar
This jam-packed page-a-day calendar is filled with hundreds of book recommendations. The calendar also includes fascinating quotes and trivia. Book recommendations are balanced between genres from classic love stories to history dramas. Your librarian’s reading list will definitely lengthen with this great gift. Plus, all calendars are currently 50% off!
While librarians have an incredible job, it can be fast-paced. Losing their place in their current reading material would be the last thing they want to happen in the leisure time. Why don’t you make sure your favorite librarian never loses their place ever again by gifting a precious bookmark? Our collection of bookmarks is cute and hip. Each bookmark includes a unique phrase proudly announcing the reader’s love of reading. My personal favorite is the “My workout is reading in bed until my arms hurt” bookmark.
Re-Used Book Journals
Here at our store, we have a large collection of priceless re-used book journals. The journals are fashioned from the covers of old books. These covers range from classics like “The World of Mice” to books from the Nancy Drew series. Now your librarian can write her thoughts in style with these unique journals. Who said something old could not be something fabulous?
In this cold weather, try to give your librarian a way to sip her preferred hot beverage. Search our mug section for stand-outs like our Mark Twain inspired mug and Jane Austen inspired mug. Maybe try something comedic like our Mr. Rogers Sweater Changing mug? Your librarian will be thankful once the weather hits the subzero temperatures.
With Valentine’s Day creeping around the corner, what’s a better gift than a book inspired necklace/earrings? Our Voz jewelry collection is the perfect fit for any bookworm. With selection from the dark Edgar Allen Poe to the cheerful Winnie the Pooh, your librarian can be accessorized with flairs of cleverness and style.
