Did you know that today was International Hug a Librarian Day? I didn’t, until a Danish friend (and Librarian) posted about it on Facebook. I suppose that’s the International bit covered.

As for the rest … being a school librarian, it might have prompted questions if pupils had appeared in the LRC for a hug, so it’s probably just as well I didn’t know about it.

I wonder if this is how these ideas spread? Someone comes up with an idea, puts it on Facebook and lots of people post queries about it until everyone suddenly says, “Hey, what are you doing for International School Librarians Get a Salary Increase Day”?
