Overheard in the Library #2

Over the years, we’ve had conversations and interactions with patrons that, let’s just say are interesting. We’ve also overheard things that make us laugh out loud as well. So we thought we’d share some of those ‘interesting’ interactions with you guys. Here’s another set of “things overheard in the library.”

-Patron: I looked up the book in some website amazon.com or something like that.

-4 year old to mom after putting a few books in the book drop, “I need to go relax a few minutes.”

main door into the library
“Open sesame! No? OK, then.”

-Patron to the door as he was leaving “Open Sesame! No? OK, then.”

-Patron came up to me and asks “Is the checkout limit 4?” Yes. “Is there anyway we can stretch that to 5?”

-A little boy was running and his mom said “Stop, I told you not to run!’ his response “Mom, my feet are out of control!”

Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
