When was the last time you hugged a librarian? Last week? Last year? Never?

Today is International Hug a Librarian Day and there’s really no excuse for the campus community at the University of Missouri–St. Louis to ignore the men and women who have saved our academic lives more than once. Approach your favorite librarian cautiously, some of them are quite introverted, according to Christopher Dames, interim dean of libraries. They may appreciate a simple handshake.

Pick your favorite library: the Thomas Jefferson Library, the main library on North Campus; the St. Louis Mercantile Library in the Thomas Jefferson Library and the Ward E. Barnes Education Library on South Campus. Join the rest of the library lovers of the world and hug away!
