What the Librarian Heard
As we continue our celebration of National Library Week, we are featuring some library or librarian related posts. Gotta love the cover art on this: check out the sensible shoes and the hair! I think librarians are naturals for the mystery genre. I haven’t read this one yet but it is on my list to read. It had some nice reviews on Amazon and I love having a librarian protagonist! Anyone read this one yet?
I think we can all imagine something that the librarian heard or saw for that matter. Some recent examples:
I was asked to predict the exact weather in Minneapolis late January, since a patron didn’t want to pay for an airline ticket from Detroit if the weather was going to be “bad”. This led to a conversation that never ended.
Holly was asked by a male patron why he couldn’t attract women. (You probably can guess this answer.)
I have yet to meet a librarian that doesn’t have a good story from library work. To me, it is that daily patron interaction that makes the job so darn interesting.
