I'm going to call everyone when I get home so that you know that I got there safely

Patron: Can I see your collection of books bound in human skin?

Turns out, it's an O.K. question. Many libraries have books bound in human skin in their special collections.

You tell 'em, Old man

Today I overheard an extra fun tidbit in the library today. There are two old men who come in everyday and everyone in the neighborhood knows them. The first one, actually, is known by everyone in the whole city because he is an eccentric lunatic with a list of priors that include things like "menacing." He likes to talk big and meaningful, but I learned from someone else in the hood that he has never had a job and lives off of a trust fund. The second one just says funny things occasionally and is generally good natured.

First old guy:  The students at ::Local:: University don't know Shakespeare! Or Philosophy! They should ban alcohol there and become a dry campus!
Other Old Guy: College without beer is like sausage without sauerkraut. Who wants that?
