Libraries Are For Everyone: Uzbek

Earlier this week I was contacted by Shawn, an Innovation Media Specialist at an elementary school in Illinois. One of her school’s EL teachers – the fabulous Lata Shah – had translated LAFE into three more languages!

Thank you both Lata and Shawn!!!

A NOTE: I am slowly working on getting my artwork uploaded onto the Wikimedia Commons for people to find it easier all the while making all of it “officially” licensed. That said – my entire blog here is under a Creative Commons Attribute/Share Alike license – so know that I both want and encourage everyone to download, share, modify, and have fun with my work!

I also want to reiterate what I’ve stated in the past since I can’t make it an exception within the license: I do not want my name (given or business) on my minimalist art. It sort of ruins the clean lines and elegance. Just don’t tell people that you’re the creator – I’m fine with you crediting it to “an awesome Punk Rock Book Jockey blogger” if you can’t recall either of my names. Or write by Hafuboti on the back in pencil if you’re worried about it. Seriously. Have fun.

I plan on putting this note on the bottom of all of my Libraries Are For Everyone posts so if you’ve read the above paragraph once, then you won’t need to again (unless you really want to).

Libraries Are For Everyone: Tamazight

A huge THANK YOU goes out to Ehab, the father one of Ann F’s students, who provided the Tamazight translation for Libraries Are For Everyone. Ann is a wonderful Teacher-Librarian in Washington, who reached out to me and with some help, provided me with this and the Oriya translation.
Thank you too, Ann!

Libraries Are For Everyone: Odia (aka Oriya)

I am still absolutely thrilled every time I receive a new LAFE translation, and there’s been a flurry of emails sent to me as the school year begins. After all, it’s so very important to remind students that they are not less than during a time where bullies are doing all that they can to tear them down because the bullies think that they need to tear others down in order to feel greater than

Ahem.

Let’s get to the Odia/Oriya signs! This is another beautiful language from India – I mean, just look at it!!! GORGEOUS. Like, I love me some English, but it takes all sorts of complex calligraphy to make it look as beautiful as Odia just IS.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to both the Library Media Specialist in Washington (hi, Ann!!!) and one of her student’s family members (hi, Padmaja!!!) who made this possible.

Display Power!

Simple and slim organizers used to make book displays on our library's endcaps (and hopefully walls, too)! | Hafuboti.com

This year I was given the go-ahead to do some creative reworking of our teen space, and it’s been pretty fun. One of the best decisions I made was ordering a bunch of these Umbra Strum Wall Organizers (FYI: I’m not being paid for this recommendation).

We’ve been wanting to order a slat wall endcaps for this area, but daaaaaang are they expensive! My solution was much cheaper, slimmer,  and can move if we ever need them to. Plus they just look fabulous and help define the Young Adult section.

I do plan on adding a fifth bracket to that shorter bookcase on the right – I just ran out of time and I was too excited to share this solution with y’all. I can be cute like that. And I also plan on sharing with y’all more of the changes that I’m making in this area once they’re done. Again, I could have waited to share everything at once, but see the aforementioned statement on my cuteness.

THE END
(or is it…?)
(probably not because sometimes my cuteness verges on adorableness)
