Since the inception of this day by a couple of crazy friends the library world has loved talking like a pirate. Where better to get your pirate speech flowing than a place that embraces the pirate as a historical figure and fictional villain? September 19th is this year’s TLAP Day! (Which already worries me- will next year’s fall on a weekend? What will I do?) But let’s focus on this year’s celebration, shall we? In addition to reading some fabulous pirate stories you may want to walk the plank to these sites and ideas. Krispy Kreme will give you a dozen free donuts if you dress up, please feel free to bring a free one to the library. In a napkin.

How to dress like a pirate? Shop Goodwill. No time? Wear jeans & roll them. Try stripes, a bandanna, a vest, a white shirt (belted even better), boots are also a good option but they were often barefoot so…have fun and wear 80’s eyeliner. If Johnny Depp can rock it so can you.
