Overheard in the Library #3

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 a third set of “things overheard in the library.”

Welcome to the “Book Factory”!

-A parent told me her son used to call the Library “The Book Factory”

-Mom to her little boy:
Mom-What happens when we run in the library?
Boy- *silence*
Mom- The floor opens up and it eats you!

-Talking with a regular patron, he was trying to describe an actor to me, and some of the movies he’s been in and he says “You know, the good looking one?” I say “Bradley Cooper” he says “YES!”

-A lady just asked where the card catalogs are! That is still one of my favorite questions. She was holding an iPhone in her hand too.

-A teen hands me his library card to check a video game controller out and says “Don’t mind if that’s sticky.”

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

Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!

I am the teen librarian at DPL and the epitome of a book nerd. When I'm not producing our teen or tween short films or getting glue everywhere while making a teen zine, I can usually be found with my nose in a classic, historical fiction, or fantasy read!
