The above linked article tells of some odd requests that patrons ask of librarians. Some of them are completely off the way, and some are just a little quirky. Most are entertaining, at least.
Some of my favorites are listed below.
- A good book to read on the toilet
- Which frame is good for a patron’s new glasses
- To borrow a car
- Help with apartment hunting
- Does this look infected?
- Delivery of books
Which librarian are you?
The above link goes to a quiz to find out which fictional librarian you are like.
I got Mrs. Phelps from Matilda. I don’t know what other librarians are available on this list, but I am curious about what others get.
I love how the group of librarians in the above linked article entertain themselves. I have followed the author’s blog for a while now, and I find her very entertaining. I am not a librarian myself, but I am aware that they are a funny bunch. Judging by the stuff I see in the library, anyone working in the library needs to have a sense of humor. They make my day, a lot!
Mixed up titles
In the above linked article, librarians tell about their favorite mixed up titles. I know my own daughter used “To Kill a Mockingjay” at one point. Some of the others are funny, too.
