Welcome to the Guide

Librarians are strange people. There are no exceptions to this rule. Many are unknowingly awkward, dirty, unsocialized, and rude. The Guide is meant to be a reference source for these poor souls who walk among us.

J, I see this blog is a little old, but it is brilliant nonetheless. this morning I set out to explore whether this notion some of us have that librarians are actually a strange breed of people is actually a well known fact. You have really hit upon something here. I urge you to reopen this guide. the librarian that inspired this search is actually an elementary school librarian who is just the latest in a string of bizarre-to-very-bizarre librarians we've had. Your work here is a real mitzvah. ;)

This is the funniest blog I've read all day. And I work at a reference desk which means I can aimlessly Google all day. (!)

I am reading them all from the beginning (at the desk) and then will pout and cry when I get to the end and click repeatedly on my favorite bookmark until you update it.
