They already have several librarian-themed shirts, mugs, etc. available. Creating your own seems to cost the same as buying a pre-existing one. $24 for a man's T-shirt, with various sizes and women's fitted ones also available. I played around with various sayings - "Librarians - the Real Know-It-Alls" , etc. What fun! You can play with various color fabric & text. Okay, back to work and reality.
