April 4th is National School Librarian Day.  Let’s give librarians a round of applause and celebrate them with visual thinking.

Icons like this can help build your visual vocabulary.  Of course you can use this icon to draw tons of concepts.  For example a book can represent learning, school, teacher, research, and so much more.  And several books together can make a library!

Can you think of more ideas a book icon can represent?  I’d love to hear it.
