Hypatia's Day is tomorrow!  
My LJ History of Celebrating Hypatia's Day.

Hypatia

Tomorrow is Hypatia's Day.

It is a day to honor and celebrate teachers, librarians and libraries - the great protectors of knowledge.

In honor of Hypatia's Day, I will be donating a bunch of my books to Value Village this year and making a monetary donation to the Seattle Public Library.

Some great ways to honor Hypatia:
Become a tutor
Become a mentor
Donate money to your public library
Donate books to your public high school
Give books to friends
Hug a teacher
Hug a librarian
Thank the teachers that influenced you
Buy a teacher a nice gift
Buy a librarian a nice gift
Give a book that inspired you in your youth to a young friend or family member

"Hug a teacher"

Technically speaking, I am a teacher.


Just sayin. ;)

I've got a hug for you anytime, man! I can't remember if I mentioned this, but I have Wednesdays off of work and sometimes have availability. If you find yourself in town and free on a Wednesday, text me?

Wilco! I'm in Canada right now and will be for the rest of the week... next week I'll be in St. Louis...


Jeez. When I put it in writing, it looks like I'm never around! I shouldn't be going anywhere for much of the rest of the month and April. I'll get with the texting when I'm in town on a Wednesday.
