***Free posters for you to print!***

I've been getting loads of e-mails from librarians asking if they could buy a poster version of the sign I made for the Mass Lobby of Parliament for School Libraries in October. (Thanks to New York and Chicago public libraries and others for the big boost! I lost track after about 8,000 Facebook shares. And thanks to those of you who piped up on their sites to say I'd drawn it!) I looked around at several websites, but they were charging quite a lot of money if you wanted to buy the posters, so I thought I'd just offer them as free downloadable PDF files, if anyone would like to make some copies off your own printer for your library. Please do spread the link to this post if you know anyone you think would like their own poster!

You can download an A4 version here and an A3 version here or US Letter size here.
Please do not use these for profit; if you're interested in selling them or putting them on other products, please get in touch with me. If you post it on the internet, please mention my name and link back here to this original blog post.

Instead of charging you, I'd just love to know where these are all going! If you could leave me any clues in the comments at the bottom of this blog post, I'd really appreciate it. Your name (just first, if you want), your school, and where it is, or anything else you'd like to say to cheer on your fellow librarians!

I also uploaded the design as t-shirts to Spreadshirt. I haven't actually seen a printed up shirt yet, so if you buy one, I'd be so pleased if you could send me a photo of you wearing it! And let me know what you think of it, if the printing's good, the fabric's okay, that sort of thing. You can buy them here.

And there's still an online black-and-white version of the poster if you want to print that to colour: Download an A3 version here, an A4 version here or US Letter size here.

You can buy more campaign-related posters over on Carel Press, and read ongoing updates about the campaign by super-librarian Barbara Band and others over on the Mass Lobby for School Libraries Facebook page. The group's still lobbying hard to give every school the right to have its own library with a trained librarian. Basic stuff, folks!

Re: Thanks!
You're welcome! :)
I'm curious, what country are you commenting from?
Nov. 30th, 2012 05:54 pm (UTC)
Thanks Sarah. These posters will be going up in my library at Hampton Academy and I will be sharing with other secondary school librarians in the London Borough of Richmond. It was great to meet you on the lobby and fantastic to have your support for our cause.

Re: Posters!
Hurrah, thanks so much for letting me know! It's fascinating to find out where the posters will end up. Glad you were able to come to the lobby! :) x

that's fantastic Sarah! did spreadshirt have an ahem lower cut neckline?
Nov. 30th, 2012 07:21 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Candy! For some reason it won't let me print the design on the only v-neck t-shirt they have. (I think the fabric is a different kind, and they only accept vector art for it; not sure why.) But the other option is a boat-neck long-sleeved shirt, and I've added that, so see if it might suit you!

A friend of mine just posted me a link to this. Amazing! It'll be up in our school library on Monday morning.

Yay, thanks for leaving a note! Great to think about librarians soaring and swooping over Nottingham. :D

I love this!!! I am going to ask for the iPhone cover and clothing for Christmas. I found this as I was researching for a presentation on marketing library electronic resources. I hope to be as awesome as a librarian as you when I graduate from library school next year.

Re: Wonderful!
Yay, thank you, Diana! I'm a writer-illustrator, not a librarian, but I'm constantly amazed by librarians! Good luck on your course, it's a a marvelous profession. :)
