TODAY'S NEWS: Happy Library Week! Are you thinking that we should celebrate by calling Reference Librarians and instead of asking them questions, tell them things? Since Information is their business, they might be really grateful. (If they seem unappreciative, don't mention my name.)
Perhaps you think it's easy to be a Librarian; just checking out books, shelving them when they come back, and collecting overdue fines now and then. Seriously, that's just the tip of the ice cream. Think about it: One could probably learn to do those things in an afternoon, but it takes years to get a degree in Library Science. The Arcane Mysteries of Libraria go much, much deeper than we mere laypersons imagine. So remember to thank your Librarians for their selfless devotion in tirelessly guarding the borders of Knowledge and defending them against the Forces of Ignorance!
