The Librarian Beanie declares what inquisitive minds and lovers of knowledge know to be true: Librarians are incredibly helpful. In fact, they’re helpful AF. Librarians are guardians of the First Amendment, keepers of history, and inimitable guides through the vast information universe. In true superhero fashion, they can debunk fake news and champion intellectual freedom in a single bound.

Choose to knit the Librarian Beanie with a shorter band of ribbing for a close fit at the crown, or go for longer ribbing if you prefer a slouchier fit.
