New and disturbing categories of books that are often stolen:

How To Start Your Own Daycare Business

Kid: Can I borrow your stapler?

Me: Sure.

He goes away, then brings it back.

Kid: See? I used it to fix the hole in my pants!

Conversation with a Retired Librarian

She is here subbing at the reference desk. I find a CD sitting by the computer.

Me: Is this checked out to someone? If not, I want to check it out.

RL: What CD is it?

Me:
The Best of Funk.

RL: What is "funk"?

I'm not THAT old, dear

A girl and her mom come in to use the internet, and they have to reset the mom's PIN.

Me: Use a number that's easy to remember.

Girl: How about the year you were born?

Mom: Okay. (Starts typing "1969")

Girl:
No, mom, aren't you in the 18s?
