Shout It Out: Libraries Are Essential!

The black-on-white bumper sticker, shown with a pen to gauge size.
Libraries Are Essential!

Is that a message you believe? One you want to shout from the mountaintops? I'd like to help you do that. 

Check out my Libraries Are Essential store on Cafe Press, where every product proudly proclaims, "Libraries Are Essential."

New for National Library Week: Inexpensive bumper stickers. They're available with black type on white OR with black type on a clear background. Buy a single one, a pack of 10, or a pack of 50. There's also a 20"W x 12"H decal to use on walls, bookmobiles, exhibit booths, and more. (The vinyl decal, just $12.50, can be placed on a wall, taken down w/o damage, then put up again repeatedly, according to Cafe Press.)

Cafe Press ships very quickly, and usually has a sale going on. These products give you a simple way to shout out about libraries' importance. Give them to staff, Friends, or Trustees, use them as prizes or giveaways, or buy in bulk to sell them as a fundraiser. 

These and the other products at this site were created by me, Kathy Dempsey, founder of the Libraries Are Essential marketing consultancy (using the logo font of my website). Feel free to ask questions, suggest new items, or contact me at Start by seeing what's available today.  

Don't forget: National Library Week is April 13-19 in the US!
