NEW T-SHIRTS! To celebrate this year’s Freedom to Read Week, we have re-vamped the ever-popular There’s Something in My Library to Offend Everybody t-shirts. The new design is by James Gemmill, and there are 3 versions, one of which is a limited edition for Freedom to Read Week 2009. $5 from the sale of each shirt goes to the Lois M Bewley Intellectual Freedom Defence Fund.
