Woman -- My friend didn't want to ask you, so I am.  He got a ticket for sleeping in his car, how much will that cost?

Me -- Could you call the phone number on the ticket?  That would be your best bet.

Woman -- That's a really good idea, thank you!

Me --  You're welcome!

List from Buzzfeed

Check out this list about the "22 stages of visiting your public library" from Buzzfeed...  love it!


Many notes like this were found in random places throughout the liberry this week.  This one even has a sparkle on it!  This makes me want to love the liberry.

Today I had an argument with an irrational customer who wanted me to define how many decibels are acceptable in the liberry.  He asked me if it is ok if he brought in his air horn.  He complained and complained that people are using the liberry for activities that aren't quiet.

And I could have said to him something absolutely true -- sir, your account is in collection.  You owe hundreds.  Would you like to pay that fine now?

Today a customer gave me a "granola" bar made of black olives and walnuts.  He said he didn't like it but thought I might.

Man-- Hi, can you put this (half gallon of orange juice) in your staff refer until I leave today?


Sorry, that's not a service we provide!  And he looked at me with starry eyes, questioning what he would do with the OJ.

Cookie Monster on Twitter

Liberrian wasn't happy with Cooooooookie Monster!

Recipe for Disaster

Consider this situation on a Friday afternoon--

The man on the Internet #17 is the one who yells at me because the Internet is slow.  He tells me to contact the IT department.  I offer him a customer survey and he says -- "give me the fucking form."

The woman on Internet #18 is the woman who can't tolerate any noise in the liberry.  We've had numerous incidents involving her.

Add in the guy on the Internet computer across from #17 who can't get his yell phone to stop playing extremely LOUD music.

What do we get?

The woman called 911 because "people were being disrespectful and disturbing the peace."

The sheriff came.  What a waste of his time.  And a waste of my time too since I had to write the report!

Liberrian Jewelry

I've had the Kate Spade necklace for a few years, but today I got the liberrian ring!
