Talk Like a Pirate

During the week of International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 14-20), go to any branch library and take a picture at our photobooth. Use our stick props and show us your best pirate pose. Upload your photo to Facebook or Twitter with #siouxlandlibpirates, and be entered into a contest to win a prize for the best pirate photo.
