library

Shhhh! You're in a library. A sacred hall of knowledge. We know you read everything online, but there is such a thing as a quiet place to read and seek out knowledge that doesn't require noise-cancelling headphones and a long battery life. So put down your smartphone, tablet, or computer and pick up a paperback. It won't bite, we think.

Who cares about overly fancy editing, platitudes about the children, or help from viewers like you. It's all about Curbside Larry. Just give Curbside Larry a call and he'll set you up with your fiction or nonfiction needs.

Library Themed Humor to Check Out

As we get older, most of us tend to think less and less about libraries, and in a way that's regrettable. It's a confusing trend too, because as we've gotten older, our desire to take advantage of free things has only gotten stronger. Knowledge is power, or something. Here's a twitter thread of a librarian's insights about the general public.

This librarian offered up their various insights they've picked up from observing the general public that flows in and out of the library. All kinds of endearing moments. Whether it's the couple bickering over each other's competing tastes, or the young adult who just had their world open up upon graduating to an "adult", and being able to read anything.

@TheMERL really hooked it up this time with a hilarious and exciting thread about a brave bat that ended up crashing a rare bookstore. Merlin sounds like quite the intellectually curious fellow, who enjoys the company of some books.

Rich Prick Won't Pay Tiny Library Fine

This rich prick in a fancy Armani suit pitched a real ridiculous fit about having to pay a 25-cent library fine. So, the employee decided to take his petty revenge by stepping out for some fresh air, right when the prick was leaving the premises, and ended up ratting him out to a parking lot cop who was busy writing people tickets. Karma/petty revenge will get ya, man! 

Rich guy complains about having to pay a 25 cent library fine, so the guy gets back at him by ratting him out to a cop writing parking lot tickets.

You never know when you're going to need some A1. But that's not something that the Avon Lake Public Library in Ohio needs to worry about. 

Apparently, the staff there has found 30 10-ounce bottles of A1 steak stauce hidden around their library. Containers were hidden on shelves and among newspapers and magazines, i.e. within reach of someone in need of adding a little flavor to their steak. After all, library steak is the best steak. 

All of the bottles, however, were totally clean, aside from a little smell. Library staff took it among themselves to investigate but have yet to find any pattern to the mysterious egg hunt. 

The libraries Facebook community has some ideas, though:

Libraries are weird, man.
