This button was created for the American Library Association in the 1970s during a time when there were not many librarian jobs available. The Social Responsibilities Roundtable, a unit within the ALA that works for progressive priorities for library professions, urged people to donate money to help support unemployed librarians.

The American Library Association is a non profit organization that supports and promotes libraries, library professionals and library education. The association was founded in 1876 and is the largest library association in the world.
