First thing this morning, a man came up to the desk to ask if we had a library cat.
Me: “You mean a cat that lives here? Sadly, no.”
Man: “I just read that Dewey the Library Cat book. I think this library should get a cat!”
Me: “I don’t think it’s in the cards. But that would be neat, huh?”
Man: “Tell you what. I’ll donate a cat. I’m sure there are some free kittens listed on Craigslist.”
Me: “Please don’t do that. We love animals, but we can’t have a library cat.”
Man: “How about a puppy?”
Trying to keep up will all the materials being returned sometimes…
This is summer reading. All day. Every day.

Speaking of which: ALA calls for accountability and transparency in nation’s surveillance laws
I love Paula Poundstone! She’s my favorite panelist on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me and she is so right about libraries!
