You can make your own READ posters over at ALA now. (This is a really old pic of me, but the first one I could find of me reading...)
Also, Librarian Gear is back! I especially like the bookmobile shirt.
Google Maps has a neat tracker for the Olympics, where you can see the medal counts, the events for the day, and the different locations for each event. (Check out the daily schedule to be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of stuff going on in a day.)
In Timbuktu, a dedicated team is struggling to restore ancient manuscripts. This is a pretty amazing story, from a place that doesn't get much attention these days.
A little belated: the Urban Journal had an entire issue earlier this year dedicated to "the Creative Library." Interesting stuff.
Also a little late (I'm just now catching up on some library-related RSS feeds) is Library Juice's take on the librarians in Generation X. I'm part of this generation, and agree that we're often overlooked amidst the boomers and the millennials. It's the quiet ones you have to look out for, though. Muhahaha!
Tomorrow: links from others.
