You may have noticed the nifty book-and-library-card Google logo on the pages of Librarian Central, but you probably don't know the story behind it. Dennis Hwang, longtime Google webmaster and the designer of countless Google holiday logos, created this one in April 2005 to celebrate National Library Week. According to a recent BusinessWeek article, "The Man Behind the Doodle," in 2005 "librarians around the country lobbied Hwang for a National Library Week doodle. After he created one, he received a big care package complete with a librarian action figure that shushed."
Sometimes, apparently, all you have to is ask. And on that note, I would really like a shushing librarian action figure of my own (like this one).
