Just a reminder that National Libraries Day will be taking place on February 9th 2013. It's the culmination of a week’s worth of celebrations in school, college, university, workplace and public libraries across the UK. The website is a great resource, listing events that are taking place near you, ways to get involved, things to download, Flickr links, YouTube videos and plenty of other links. It's worth making the point (often lost by some authorities) that this is a series of events to tell people what fantastic things happen in local libraries, and to show how much they are valued by local communities.
I've still got my collection of Library Propaganda Posters available, and there's just under 50 of them. They're all Creative Commons, so if you'd like to take any/some/all of them to turn into posters, put on flyers, include on any materials that you'd like to - as long as they promote libraries, please simply use them. You don't need to ask permission at all - though it's great to see photographs of how they are used! There are also a few items in my Zazzle store that use them and you'll see the posters on badges, mugs, bags and so on. Any money that I get for these (which isn't much) goes straight to charity, so you can help libraries AND charity at the same time.
