Here’s the link for more information about the PS244 fundraising campaign

Here’s the link to the GIVE IT ALL TO ME Library Collection at OutofPrintClothing.com.

Check it out! The good folks dropped me a line about this project last week, and I’m happy to boost for Library Week.

Not gonna lie, I instantly bought a shirt and tote this morning when I first saw the email at work! 

1 of each please!

silversarcasm:

why do people act like representation in media is about ‘political correctness’ when it’s actually about the fact that people are literally made to feel incorrect for who they are through the erasure and mocking of them

You say, “It may not be politically correct, but …”

What I hear is that you want to say whatever offensive thing you want but not be held accountable.

"Strong is the New Pretty" is a new photo series by Kate Parker which shows her two daughters and their friends "just as they are: loud, athletic, fearless, messy, joyous, frustrated. I wanted to celebrate them, just as they are, and show them that is enough.  Being pretty or perfect is not important. Being who they are is."

Adult librarians are like lazy bakers: their patrons want a jelly doughnut, so they give them a jelly doughnut. Children’s librarians are ambitious bakers: ‘You like the jelly doughnut? I’ll get you a jelly doughnut. But you should try my cruller, too. My cruller is gonna blow your mind, kid.’
