Wear a Pirate's Hat in your Library on Wednesday!

We are aiming at Wednesday 15th of September 2010. But there are really no strict rules, so if you can't make it just tell us a big fib and upload your stories, images and videos anyway. That way it will be just like writing a job application!

Ruth has explained it all here on her blog:

The event has two patrons: Matthew Mitcham (general icon/treasure-about-town and 2008 Olympic Gold medallist in 10m platform diving) & Jinja Safari who are a fantastic band and provide us with this theme song via YouTube:



Please join in and help spread the word everywhere. It is all for a good cause that now has its own hashtag on Twitter #noparticularreason
