Buy a hat.
Solid navy, white lettering. Old school styling. High-quality wool body and brim, leather back strap for adjustment. Ex libris tag inside for marking your hat as your own.
We had a dream. That dream was to make a hat. A hat that showed what we love (libraries) and hid what we didn’t (hair one day past saving with dry shampoo).
Working in libraries is a vocation for many of those who do it. No matter the type, size, location, user group served, funding status, or organizational focus, libraries by definition have common goals. A library exists to support its users in accessing the information they need to find success as humans, members of society, workers, neighbors. As library workers we identify with the criticality of that mission.
As library workers we have more in common with each other than we have differences. No matter where we work in the world — in a physical library, in a non-traditional library-like space, as catalogers or children’s librarians or shelvers or volunteers or medical librarians, as keepers of Little Free Libraries...we are all on Team Library.
Library Hats are for people who believe in all of that and want to show it with what they wear. A Library Hat is a conversation starter — trust us, people are going to ask about your hat. Tell them what you like about libraries, how they have been a source of good in your life, how they help you and your neighbors, and what can be done to support them in their mission.
And if the hat isn’t enough...every Library Hat comes with a tool for civic or community engagement or supports a cause near and dear to the hearts of Team Library.* We hope you find ways to show the people around you library love. And we hope you love your hat.
*You’ll always be informed when you buy a Library Hat of how we’re keeping this promise.
