After having conversations with a few co-workers about the hazards of our job, I decided to come up with some updated gear for a library page. There are probably hundreds of other clothes and accessories I could have included, but ran out of room. Feel free to write in with any other ideas you might have.
And the reason for this t-shirt is because I'm frequently asked, "Excuse me, do you work here?" while in the middle of shelving books and wearing a library employee badge on my chest. Sometimes I feel like answering back, "No, I'm just a patron that likes to push book carts around and shelve books...sorry."

You think the gloves are enough? God only knows what patrons do to the materials between checking them out and chucking them down the return chute... along with the occasional flora, fauna or foodstuffs. Lysol! (and lots of it, please)

I'll confess that I am skeptical of the choice in shoes. I like the look of them, but would probably go with something more protective than canvas.

Poorly-lit areas, like sheet music, my perennial favorite, despite the gloom. ^_^

Can you tell me where I can buy those Limited Edition (Page Endorsed) Chuck Taylors? I'm going to ask Santa for a pair for Christmas.
