There is never not a time to talk about how much you love the library. Whether you’re a librarian or simply a library enthusiast, one way to show off your love and support for all things libraries is through sporting some sweet swag. While enamel pins might not have the choke hold on pop culture that it had just a few years ago, there is nothing wrong with snagging a pin, putting it on your denim jacket or tote, and showing off how much you love one of the most amazing human creations out there.

Find below a range of enamel pins for librarians and library lovers. You’ll see some takes on library cards, some cute creatures emblematic of libraries, due date cards, and so much more. These pins highlight the inclusivity and need to continue championing an institution dedicated to serving all people, not just those with the most money or most connections to political power (am I feeling spicy as I write this, knowing that libraries are continually under attack from far right-wing Christian nationalists? Indeed).

All of these goods are by small creators, so your few dollars help support the talent of folks who also love and support all things libraries.

Want more? Snag some great librarian shirts and sweatshirts and some due date card goods, too.
