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.

Book­marks!

bookmarkWhile 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.

Jew­el­ry!

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.
