For the librarian who can’t remember what their profession is:

The appropriately named “Librarian Sweatshirt”. This pairs nicely with pants that say “pants” on them.

Imagine the looks on their faces during the next Very Hungry Caterpillar read-aloud when you pull this out. Just imagine the looks.

For the librarian who should have hung it up in 1991:

This sticker gives off just the right “I’ve given up” vibe.

For the librarian that needs the perfect throw pillow to complete a room:

… although I’m kinda scared about what that room might be.

For the librarian who’s confused about their job description:


For the librarian who needs just one more tote bag:

So that’s what happened to my bedspread.

For a librarian you would like to offend:

“When I saw this sticker, I immediately thought of you!”

For the obsessive note-taking librarian:

Yes, this is a notebook. Can you think of a better place to record your thoughts and feelings than in this handsome keepsake?

For the librarian who’s a little too “in tune” with the Twilight series:

A knit hat based on… Edward Cullen’s eyes. Next up, a shirt based on Jacob Black’s pecs.
