More On-The-Item Patron Reviews

   April 4th, 2012 Brian Herzog

A few months ago, someone donated DVDs to the library that had their personal reviews stuck to the covers. In that same theme, we recently found one of the library's Twilight books had been "reviewed" (rather harshly) in the same manner:

Although I still like the idea of patron interaction and reviewing books in context, this doesn't exactly qualify. The Avery label scraps made me laugh though.

Psst… Want a Sticker?

Swiss Army Librarian stickersThis is the week* I would have been at the Ohio Library Council's annual conference, had it not been canceled. However, before I knew that, I had printed a bunch of Swiss Army Librarian stickers I was going to give to the people who came to my panel discussion.

Since that is no longer possible, I thought I'd offer them here. I have 40 of them, so the first 40 people to email me will get them - free, but you will need to send me an stamped return envelope (I'll email you back with more details).

Update: Sorry, all the stickers are gone. If I get more I'll post again here.

My cousin and graphic artist Tom created the artwork (thank you again), and CafePress did the printing. I put the same artwork on shirts, too, but haven't seen how those look - maybe I'll get one for myself for Christmas.

And speaking of gift ideas, here's a few other Swiss Army-related products I've had kicking around in my bookmarks folder for awhile:

And just because I thought it was funny, here too is a Swiss Army Knife FAIL comic:

*This is also the week of NELA09, which I attended and blogged Sunday and Monday. Yay for library conferences.
