I am a bad librarian

…but I am ready for my close-up, Mr DeMille! I was mentioned in Steven M. Cohen’s article on the “New Breed of Library Weblogs“. I got quite a kick out of being grouped with Nat, Mike, Greg, Liberry Blooze, Technobiblio, Tame the Web, Library Girl, and the Info Commons Blog. It’s all downhill from here, baby! w00t!

I am a bad librarian because at the reference desk today–

I had a very very hard time spelling ichthyology.

I totally forgot the title of the Historical Statistics of the United States, I was like “Durr, I know there is a reference book where you can look those statistics up…what was it called?

Statistics of the Historic United States?” Thankfully it was time for another librarian to man the desk, and I was rescued from my brain freeze.

I finally went to the public library and paid my fines (this is where I am a bad, bad, bad librarian). I owed around $7.00. But then I could check out books again!
And it seems like the friends group of my public library has continued to provide funding for the tiny graphic novel collection, I checked out Marvels and Peach Girl. I also picked up some P.G. Wodehouse and….Wait for it! Brace Yourself!!!!!
