Staplers, Honoring fallen

Librarians should observe a moment of silent reflection every time a stapler is broken at the reference desk.

Also known as a never ending vow of silence.

I have often said that our students should pass an exam and be licensed before being allowed to use our staplers. :oD

I would also like to honour the three-hole punch and the paper guillotine.

Let us not forget the pencil sharpeners, both electric and handheld.

comment on another library blog
Public can't figure out how to print but can staple
College students know how to print but not how to staple.

How about unreturned library books?!

I think if we held a moment of silence for unreturned books, we may get that kind of library that certain users dream about, the one where absolutely no sound is uttered or made.
