Libraries Are For Everyone: Romanian

The wonderfully fabulous Karen Van Drie (@worldlibraries) came to the rescue again by providing me with the Romanian translation after an Icelandic librarian requested it. Y’all seriously should follow Karen on Twitter – she’s great!

Thank you Karen, yet again!!!!!

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: 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!!!!!

Libraries Are For Everyone: Lithuanian

Janice Marsh from Warren-Newport Public Library in Gurnee, Illinois reached out to me with a Lithuanian translation after I sent out a call for help. The wonderful Ron Kilik, an adult services associate at WNPL and a native of Lithuania, offered this translation. It translates to Libraries for All.

Thank you both, Janice and Ron!!!

Libraries Are For Everyone: Norwegian

Rachael Smith, a super-nice Access Services Associate at Mount Holyoke College, wrote me a squee-worthy email. Within it, she provided me with a Norwegian translation (which reads The Library Is For Everyone). Sven Aas, the Head of Web Services & Application Development at MHC, and his native speaking Norwegian cousins worked together to come up with this translation.

Sven also shared the following: there are two national languages in Norway. The translation I’m proposing is in Bokmål, which is the more widely-spoken of the two. I don’t know how the Nynorsk rendering might differ. 

If you’d like a Nynorsk translation, then please send it my way and I’ll happily add it to this post.

Thank you Sven and cousins!!!

Libraries Are For Everyone: Button Templates

Way back at the beginning of posting my Libraries Are For Everyone campaign, a librarian reached out and asked if I could help make round button templates. I utterly failed to make decent templates for her in time (sorry about that!), but I finally did get some made – and then promptly forgot about them.

I was reminded after I announced on social media that I had more square buttons available on Zazzle. I then received several requests for round button templates – and I had them! And because of the popularity of my blank Libraries Are For Everyone templates, I also made a set of blank round button templates. With those you could do something like, oh I dunno, add the name of your summer programming theme. Heh.

Okay – I’ll be quiet now and share the goodies. Enjoy!!!
