Encouraging Book Returns with Library Memes (with free printables!)

I'm a nerd. Let's be honest. If I could venture a guess, I would say that a lot of librarians are. In any case, this nerdiness is really making itself known today. Because I have designed some library memes (memes make a great display topic). But not just any library memes! Nerdy library memes. That are, in fact, very cool at the same time.

That's right, I made posters for a library to display to help encourage patrons to return/renew books on time. Avoid those icky penalties or late fees, you know? Anyway, I'm sharing these designs with you. All out. Do what you want with them. I just appreciate the credit.

Here are the files: Google Drive .pdf or you can download the individual pictures...

They're sized 8.5 x 11, and can go up to 11 x 17, depending on your needs.

Oh, they do bring me much joy. Hopefully, they can find a place in your library! Perhaps in a school library, to encourage the students to stay on top of returns. Or in a public library, to remind patrons to avoid fines. It's all good to me.


Anyway, let me know what you think! Or share any other ideas you have for fun library memes!


  1. These are awesome! They were shared with me during a recent School Library Staff meeting in Fresno County (CA). Our team will be sharing them with the Tulare & Kings County School Library Staff next week.

    1. Oh sweet!! Thanks for letting me know! Glad it's being shared :)

  2. Great posters! I can't wait to share.

  3. THANK YOU! These are great and are now hanging in our community library in Norman Wells, Northwest Territory Canada!
