apologies for x-posting, and mods let me know if this is not ok and i'll take it down.Leave a comment
after a particularly upsetting incident with a regular library patron, i decided that it would be nice to have a community dedicated to this issue. just a place for library staff to support other folks who work in libraries after upsetting interactions. it is, for me at least, such a special breed of emotions when this happens that my normal support system isn't always really able to understand.
please come join us at librarysupport!

Megan: It looks like a mouse took a bite out of this music score.
Adam: Aww, that's too bad. The music must have been cheesy.
Megan: That was cheesy. The mice should be chewing on you!

Student Orientation leader, to a large group of prospective students and their families taking a tour of the campus: "And now let me take you over here and show you my favorite part of the library. These are the most comfortable couches on the whole campus. If you ever need a nap, come here."2 comments - Leave a comment

'Do you know where I should put the skeleton?'
I thought I'd misheard her, but apparently a professor had put a human skeleton, in a box, on reserve in the past few days while I've been out sick. I did not, in fact, know where to put it.
