Avast, me bookaneers! Here’s a quick update before bed!
Tomorrow (today) is Talk Like a Pirate Day, and our library is doing some special things for it! We have a great display of pirate books in the children’s area, and the Youth Services staff are giving away pirate-related prizes to kids who participate and talk like a pirate to them. That’s the easiest way to find treasure I’ve ever seen!
What’s even better is that I asked my supervisor and he said I could dress in costume for the special day tomorrow! He mentioned I would probably be the only one in the lobby in costume, and of course I replied that it didn’t matter. This holiday was MADE for me and I plan to celebrate! I’ll be wearing a lighter version of my full pirate garb, and a hat with no feathers. Too distracting and cumbersome. (Though ye can tell by me sea-worthy bearing that I be a true captain, feathers in me cap or no!)
I’ll post a photo tomorrow of my costume, but anyone who’s local should come visit and say ahoy! September is also Library Registration Month, so come on downtown and we’ll get you signed up for a new card if it’s been awhile.
(My pirate friends and I were hoping our local Krispy Kreme was participating in the “free donuts for pirates in costumes” event, but they are not. Boo! I suggested we storm the place and commandeer the donuts, but we decided that wouldn’t be very polite.)
Keep bookaneering, mateys! Yoho!
