Libraries Are For Everyone: Spanish

Remember how at the end of my previous post, I ever-so-subtly hinted that I love being emailed? Well, lots of you took the hint! Hooray!

One email in particular really caught my attention. It was from the fabulous Ludy Rueda, Bilinual and Multicultural Outreach Services Librarian, from the Poudre River Public Library District. Within her email she shared the Spanish translation of Libraries Are For Everyone (and she didn’t know that becoming fluent in Spanish has become a goal of mine). Combine that with my order for these beautiful buttons arriving today, and I had a thunderclap realization: I need to modify these images to include a diverse number of languages!

And that’s what I’m going to do with the help of the lovely Ludy and her various contacts. Over the next few days I’m going to be churning out alternate versions in different languages. Therefore, if you receive my blog via email, then I’m warning you that you’ll be getting a lot of email from me. I promise that this is not the norm, but if it gets to be too much, then please unsubscribe. I won’t feel hurt, and I know that you know where to find me.

Now, without further ado: the Spanish versions courtesy of Ludy Rueda!

Alicia, a considerate reader, wrote to me to explain Latinx and that I should include it as an important alternate version. I am so grateful that she reached out and made this suggestion. Don’t know what Latinx is? Then you should read this like I did.

So without further ado, the gender-inclusive versions:

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).

  1. Agradeço muito mesmo estás imagens e estas dicas…é bom poder mostrar com permissão é claro a mensagem em línguas estrangeiras os alunos aprendem algumas dessas línguas. Em Português? Porque não? Já agora, os meus alunos autistas iriam gostar de ler as frases nos cartazes em linguagem SPC, o texto por imagens iguais em todo o mundo, a grande biblioteca inclusiva…maria joao professora bibliotecária na escola dr ruy de Andrade no entroncamento Portugal

    • Oi Maria!

      Estou usando o Google transslate para tentar responder a você em português. Peço desculpas se isso acaba sendo confuso.

      Se você gostaria de compartilhar comigo a tradução do português para bibliotecas são para todos, então por favor compartilhe comigo e eu vou adicioná-lo à minha lista de idiomas!

      Eu não sou certo o que você significa com respeito a seus autistas estudantes. Existe algo que eu possa fazer para que eles gostem do cartaz que você menciona? Por favor, explique mais e farei o meu melhor para que isso aconteça.

      Muito obrigado por comentar!
