Thaaaaaaat’s right, every year, we set aside one whole week to celebrate all libraries everywhere.
We know, we know…it’s just one week out of the whole year. But still…it makes your faaaaaavorite librarians feel like THIS…
And we’re hoping that visiting your library makes you feel the same way. Whether you find A BUNCH OF ARTICLES FOR THAT HORRIBLE RESEARCH PAPER YOU’RE WRITING, or THE NEXT BOOK IN A SERIES THAT YOU’RE TOTALLY ADDICTED TO, or AN AWESOME MOVIE TO WATCH ON A RAINY DAY, we’re here for you.
…Thaaat’s right. Happy National Library Week, you guys!

need for divergent muppets
1. This is why spelling and grammar are important, even on signs. Especially on signs.
2. OMG DIVERGENT MUPPETS! We were just thinking the Muppets could be a little more Divergent. Okay, we weren’t, but…DIVERGENT. MUPPETS.

Spring is in the air (in some parts of the world…), and that can only mean one thing: It’s time for Accio Books!
Over the years, our annual book drive has built libraries in Rwanda, the Mississippi Delta, and New York City. Members like you have collectively donated over 100,000 books.
This year, we are thrilled to announce that our primary donation recipient will be the Brightmoor Community Center in Detroit, Michigan. All of the books collected during the drive will be catalogued by our University of Michigan chapter, The Whomping Wolverines, and in September they will be given away for free to members of the Brightmoor community during an appearance of our Apparating Library at Brightmoor’s annual Back To School Rally.
You also have the option to donate locally or join up with your local chapter to see where they’re donating this year.
No matter how or where you donate books, be sure to log them for points in our annual House Cup.Will Ravenclaw win again? Will we beat our record of 30,000 book donations from last year? Will Tom Hiddleston hear about our campaign and personally donate one thousand books?
THE GAME, DEAR WIZARDS, IS ON!
Hey nerds! Have some books lying around that could use a better home? Want to get together with other nerdfighters and make a positive impact on your community? Wanna be real cool?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, why not collect books to donate either locally or to the HPA’s Apparating Library in Detroit?
More info will be coming shortly on how nerdfighters can join magical forces with the HPA for good during this drive, but for now, get talking in your local nerdfighter groups and brainstorm up some ways that you can work together to collect books to donate, either as a collective, or as part of an HPA chapter, if there’s one near you.
…How cool is this? That’s a rhetorical question, because you could never actually come up with an answer for how cool it is.
Have any books lying around, you guys?Source: thehpalliance
