Did you watch the VMAs a few weeks back? I know I did. Beyoncé is having a baby? Gaga looks like a greaser? And what was that thing on Katy Perry’s head? So many questions, so little time. Anyway, one of the ways MTV gets so many celebrities in one place is with their famous MTV Swag Bag. From Fendi sunglasses to Isaac Mizrahi shoes to Sean John shirts with real gold-leaf to VIP suites at the Palms…the gift bag can include up to $27,000 worth of free swag. And everyone gets one! (except for Kreayshawn…I hear “she don’t even bother”)
Here at Lupton Library we’ve decided to take a page out of the MTV Guide to Treating VIPs Nicely* and offer some swag of our own. Take a walk down the red grey carpet to the reference desk and get treated like a library VIP with your choice of LUPTON LIBRARY SWAG!

Genuine Lupton Library Water Bottle
Keep yourself hydrated in style with a BPA-free, library-branded water bottle. I’m not going to lie and say that THIS IS THE GREATEST WATER BOTTLE YOU WILL EVER OWN, but it is pretty sweet.
Aerodynamically Optimized Piece of Blue Plastic
Did you know that the word “Frisbee” is a registered trademark? Yep, it sure is. But, even though the power-mad industry magnates at Wham-O can control a word, they’ll never control the magic of flight! So, grab a Frisb…Flat Disc of Blue Plastic today, and have at it! (Just don’t throw it in the building. That’s only allowed during the Indoor Library Disc Golf tournament that I want to hold.)
Swarovski Crystal Encrusted* Mini-Highlighters
You’ll love the subtle elegance of our mini highlighters. Our high quality neon yellow ink is made from either Siberian tiger tears or non-toxic pyranine dye. The luxurious casing of either Venetian crystal or plastic. We guarantee your highlighting will never be the same. *(Swarovski crystals not included)
Lupton Library Ball-Point Click Pen
These pens are awesome. Trust me, I’m one of those people who gets extremely picky about pens. Like, this one time, at the bank, I went to fill out a deposit slip and the only pen they had was a Uni-Ball Gelstick 0.7…in blue. Needless to say, I got to raging and by the time the SWAT team got me out of the air-ducts, I swore I’d never go to that bank again. So…umm…yeah. These are really good pens.
Beverage Opener KeychainThe old stand-by, running three years strong. Getting a little, blue, Lupton Library bottle opener is sort of a rite of passage at UTC. Whether you’re cracking open a bottle of Mexican Coca-Cola from the tacqueria (the kind with real sugar in it) or you’re opening some other age-appropriate beverage, Ol’ Lupty won’t let you down.
It’s a yo-yo. ‘Nuff said.
You know what the boss does? The boss wears the pants around here. And pants have belt loops. And belt loops are for carabiner keychains. So, if you want everyone to know you’re the boss, you’d better get yourself one of these keychains.
So, want some swag? Stop by the reference desk and a reference librarian will hook you up. And while you’re loading up on goodies, why not let that librarian help you find a book, a movie, or some great articles for that paper you’re working on.
