Lighter Side of Libraries
Libraries are too often stereotyped as dusty, quiet-as-a-tomb institutions staffed by humorless librarians. This issue of our newsletter sets out to debunk that stereotype once and for all by taking a look at the lighter side of libraries. From library mascots, to comics and cartoons focused on libraries and librarians, to humorous stories involving some of our youngest library customers, libraries are often places where laughter and humor abound. We hope you will enjoy this issue of The News and to start things off, here is a link to one of my favorite library comic strips featuring the irrepressible Charlie Brown.
Do you have a funny story about your library that you would like for us to include in our newsletter next year? If so, you can submit it on our website at Share Your Story.
