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.

Hooray!

Who wouldn’t want to catalog bird puke?! I swear publishers’ antics will keep me forever young.

The desire: to jump on the book tree bandwagon.

The reality: we don’t want to use library books in case, you know, someone actually needs to use them for reading purposes.

And then: persons still unknown moved the dinosaur from its home in the children’s department and placed it outside the local history room.

The solution: have the dinosaur decorate the tree and ask patrons (I use patron and customer interchangeably due to split usage by my colleagues) to name him/her.

Final result: everyone seems to be enjoying the complete randomness and we still don’t know how the little dude got there. And the children’s librarians retaliated by grabbing the bronze bust of Washington from the history room and he now lives with the children. But that’s another post…

Surprise! It’s an awesome (but unknown) book. Overall pretty simple to set up and the customers are loving it.

And the library’s FourSquare mayorship has returned to its origins. Mwahahaha!

Typical Monday morning drinking problem.

Boy? Girl? Child? Adult? Possibly all four.

Behold: a spine label printer that DOESN’T utilize dot matrix “technology.” And it’s quiet. And fast. And legible.

My car. Because if you’re going to put a graphic on your car you may as well be promoting books & reading.

That’s okay. I skip breakfast, too.

Due to some overlapping UPCs, The Slut was hiding under a James Taylor CD in the database. Cataloging detective work resulted in this actual note, a metaphor for life.

My only beef? “Younger Americans” are apparently under 30. D’oh.

So this is my first Tumblr post. I could wax poetic on how I’d like to keep a chronicle of what the hell is going on in my life…but instead I give you what is quite possibly my most favorite e-card ever. This pretty much sums me up.
