National Library Workers Day: That’s How I Rove


That’s How I Rove
Originally uploaded by udandi

My coworkers and I decided to attend the staff lunch in coordinating “That’s How I Rove” t-shirts but as we walked in the room, they seemed to receive a frosty reception. Then, we remembered 40- and 50-somethings are not exactly up on the hip-hop lingo when translated into library-speak. Plus, I think it was hard for them to figure out what call numbers we had on our backs and why we had them – we picked them based on our interests. I returned my tee to my locked and later pulled it out to show our teen and college-age coworkers who chuckled. They got it!

    Girl, did you guys really make those t-shirts?!?! Why was I not invited to the party? I rove on occasion!

    BTW- I saw a baby t-shirt with a stroller outlined and the caption underneath was “That’s how I roll”. I seriously considered buying it…

    megan told me last week about a t-shirt she found online that said, “forget books, check out your librarian.”
