April Fools' Day, Celebrating

Celebrate April Fools' Day by telling playfully outlandish tales to your library patrons, like, "The library web site is a good alternative to Google!" or "I would love to hear about your family genealogy!"  Hilarity will ensue.

Ask the readers: What outlandish tales will you tell this April Fools' Day?

By all means, I will be delighted to help you find the blue book with the lady on the front cover! It'll be a cakewalk!

BCL's joke would be funnier if Baltimore's Enoch Pratt Free Library weren't doing grocery pickup at branches.

"Today there will be no time limits on the internet stations! Facebook and search for porn to your heart's content, my dears. Periodically my coworkers and I will come by to hose you off and offer you delicious snacks. Enjoy!"

Of course I want to hear all the gory details of your personal journey through menopause. Bring it on!

1. "I like you."

2. "Your input is valued."

3. "There is no way the library can function without you as the [director, manager, etc.]. We would be lost without you."

"My co-worker over there would love to do your taxes for you, but you should probably wait a couple weeks before you bring your W-2s and stuff--he's busy with a paper jam right now"!
