Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Kate Ragsdale, a retired UA librarian who lost her life during a home evasion Sunday, Feb 24th.
The Loudoun Library book sale is back on schedule after some guy donated storage space for donated books. Hoo-wee, that was close! And how about that? Double Donation! That’s the kinda Double D I like to see!
There’s a guy in Richmond who thinks that by using available funds he can get a library “erected.” BWAHAHAHAHAHA I’M FIVE.

First year grad student hired to write hilarious article headline stating people are still, wait for it, “checking out” the library! Puntastic!

A part-time teen librarian position is being requested at the Canton Public Library.

Not on my watch, goddamn it! Some little teen bastard wants to take my job, he’ll have to do it over his his own hands, cause I’m gonna cut’em off! Now get the hell off my lawn!
