Here is some library humor to celebrate National Library Week.

I am a librarian.

And I have worked in libraries for 32 years. In that time, I have been a shelver, worked the circulation desk, spent 12 years as a children’s librarian and for the last 4, as an academic librarian in several colleges, so I know a bit about the library world.

We are a quirky bunch, but you probably already knew that.

So, today, I hope you will indulge me while I share some of my favorite library funnies with you.

And, the next time you visit your local library, let the staff know that you appreciate them.  It means a lot to hear that from the people we serve 🙂

But, before the library humor, a bit of information for you.

April 9th – 15th is National Library Week.

What is National Library Week, you ask?

According to the American Library Association:

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.

So, to begin the library humor, I must admit that this is the current header of my personal Facebook page 😉

Told you we had a quirky sense of humor…

Smooth operator…

I REALLY want this shirt 🙂

Yes, yes, yes!

I volunteer to Google with Han Solo 😉

Ugh! One of my pet peeves…

Or librarian…

Okay, this made me laugh WAY too hard 🙂

Yes, I must admit, Belle is my favorite Disney princess because she reads a lot (even to sheep).

See??? Coincidence?  I think not.

So many friends have posted this picture to me, I just had to share it. (And yes, I have filed cards into those card catalogs…)

Another shirt I want…

Exactly…(although I did hit that milestone this year, so hurry up, Gandalf)

Yes, this has happened to me.  Many times.  And, not to brag, but quite a few times I have found the one they were looking for. (They were not impressed, though, because they assumed I would know… sigh)

Yes! I think all library people have this, actually…

You have been warned…

My favorite Dr. Who quote. This HAD to be included. 🙂

And finally…

Thank you for letting me share these. I hope you enjoyed them, too!
