(Apologies for cross-posting)
Those of us lucky enough to work in libraries have seen and heard it all,
haven't we? Patrons have given us impressively creative excuses, I mean
perfectly valid reasons, for their overdue items; we've been asked to find
answers to the most bizarre questions; we've caught library users in various
corners of the stacks in, ahem, awkward positions.
We share these wonderful stories at conferences, in the lunchroom, and
with friends who respond incredulously with "Really?! In the library???!!!"
These are the type of stories that simply need to be shared.
On the website you can also read a few teaser stories, find out where I
will be during the year (maybe we can get together and talk about your
stories), and see some of the images created by my excellent illustrator. I'm
blogging my progress and you can follow me on Twitter http://twitter.com/cataloguethat
I can't wait to read your stories and I'm even more excited to share
them. So, click here
tell me all about it. Who knows…maybe your story will be featured on the site
or illustrated in the book!
Please feel free to forward to other listserves and colleagues.
In anticipation of your sharing your story, I thank you very
