These beautiful book-themed socks have a special meaning to John and John's Crazy Socks Team. John has struck up a relationship with President George H. W. Bush and the former President wore these socks during the services for his wife, Barbara Bush, as a tribute to his wife's commitment to literacy programs. At Mr.Bush's request, we sent these Socks (as well as the men’s version) to the Bush family who wore them at the service to honor Mrs. Bush.  We were so honored and humbled to help the family.

Mrs. Bush had long promoted family literacy and had raised over $100 million for the cause. To honor Mrs. Bush, we will donate 100 percent of the profits from each pair of these socks to the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation.

Here is what the Bush family spokesperson said: To honor his wife of 73 years and her commitment to family literacy, for which she raised over $110 million over the course of over 30 years, will be wearing a pair of socks festooned with books at today’s funeral service for former First Lady Barbara Bush.

Designed by the creative minds at ModSocks, they come in black and heather blue. There is also a Library Socks for Literacy Men’s Crew. So support the cause and get yourself a pair of these Library Socks for Literacy (a.k.a. Bibliophile)  Knee High Socksor give them to your friend who loves books more than anything.

Book lover meets sock joy!

Perfect combination of two delights! Socks intended to promote literacy? What could be better? Oh, I know the answer to that question! The service at John’s Crazy Socks is simply the icing on the cake! The literacy socks I purchased will be used as the little ‘extra’ gift for everyone on my Christmas list. I bought 20 pairs; I may need more!

Awesome socks!

The Library Socks for Literacy, like all the other socks i’ve purchased from John, are well made. The graphics are clear; the colors vibrant. Fit is as expected. Prices are reasonable. I appreciate the system for notifying me when a particular pair of socks is back in stock. Thank you, John!
