Celebrate the Third Annual T-Shirt Week

Wear a t-shirt next week, come to the daily photo shoot.
(Details below of when, who, where, what - too many words? Forget the details - Just do it!)

Join us* in celebrating the Third Annual T-Shirt Week at the library, starting next Monday the 24th of July 2017, continuing all week to be topped off with Hawaiian shirt day on the last Friday of July (this year the 28th of July).

This is completely voluntary.

*Us = anyone, or specifically all who work at the Libraries, including staff, librarians, workers – AND those who otherwise work in the Libraries (that includes Papers people and others), plus any and all guests, friends, and family who might be around next week to join us, a fantastic bunch of people.

Noon Photo Shoot – (we click the camera at 12:05, be there) every day, on the steps of Alderman Library. Show off your T-Shirt.  But, if you can’t make the shoot, please take some selfies or have someone take a photo of you with  your fellow library participants, and send them to us (

Suggested, Optional Themes - for the Third Annual T-Shirt Week (2017), topics and / or colors. These are completely up to you, your preferences to wear a shirt of the day’s theme or color, or to ignore them and wear what you want.

If you can’t make it every day, come at least once during the week – not just from Alderman, but other libraries, Special Collections, SEL, Music, Fine Arts, etc.  Gordon Ave? City?

*Monday (24th July) Local or Monticello or Charlottesville connected day. Alternative – any shirt with an animal on it (Warner) or “Geek Galore” Day.  Break out those obscure references, those Firefly shirts, those corny knock-knock joke shirts … just a thought (R. Peters) Suggested color = RED
*Tuesday (25th July) Cruise, road trip, travel, visits, Semester at Sea day. Suggested color = BLUE or GREEN
*Wed (26th July) University of Virginia (sports or general), or some other University or College you like or attended. Suggested color = ORANGE
*Thursday (27th July) Vintage T-Shirt day (Warner), or Music, concert, band day. Suggested color = WHITE and / or BLACK
*Friday (28th July) Hawaiian or snazzy shirt day (since Ellen and others don’t have an Hawaiian shirt, just wear a snazzy or colorful one). Suggested color = MIXED
Do you remember the 2 minute TShirt Dance of the first annual t-shirt week?
