National Librarian Day!

(Katherine Hepburn in one my favorite Librarian Movies; Desk Set)

Today is National Librarian Day! Being a Librarian is my Employment du Jour. Go hug a librarian... better yet, just get a book and sit really quietly and read it.



"I also really didn't realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous group. ... You think they're just sitting at the desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man. I wouldn't mess with them." ~Michael Moore



"Librarians, Dusty, possess a vast store of politeness. These are people who get asked regularly the dumbest questions on God's green earth. These people tolerate every kind of crank and eccentric and mouth breather there is." ~Garrison Keillor



"Don't mark up the Library's copy, you fool! Librarians are Unprankable. They'll track you down! They have skills!" ~Charles Ogden



"Librarian is a service occupation. Gas station attendant of the mind." ~Richard Powers

HUGS!
I am reading Living Christ, Living Buddah. And it is not about Buddy's belly.

You're a librarian? I didn't know that! How cool. The library has saved me from certain bankruptcy and being buried alive under copies of books I've only read once.

I've always had a secret desire to be a librarian...working in the Library of Congress. Le sigh.

I just got back from the library, and my librarian looks like Santa Claus.
