Libraries Are For Everyone: Marshallese

Wendy Christy, the Children’s Librarian at the Saline County Public Library, shared with me that her library has decided to ditch the nationwide summer programming, and is going with the theme Libraries Are For Everyone! I mean, WOW!!! 

She didn’t write to me to just tell me that, but to also request a set of signs in Marshallese to reflect this group in their community. Fortunately, she used her awesome networking skills and found a translation through the fab Erin Renollet. As an FYI this translates literally to libraries are for the public and for everyone.

Thank you both Wendy and Erin, for both caring and sharing!!!!!

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).
