I wonder what the librarian thinks when I check out books on Juche Thought that probably haven't been touched in a quarter-century.

I had a librarian part-time scholarship for some months at an Arab Studies department, and a foreign law student often came around looking for obscure law books. I had to physically cut open some of them for him, they had never been read before. It felt good to know they were getting some love, and also that upper management would see them being used and therefore would not have a excuse to get rid of them. Old forgotten books rule

Hey, it's been a long time since I posted a story! Was just reminded of an incident thanks to the r/relationships thread, of all places. We'll call it

A Tale of Two Bitches

I live in a very hot city which is also filled with unconsiderate assholes, each summer we get 3-4 stories of dead dogs in cars, and almost every time it's "I left it there for five minutes and I came right back, I don't know how it happened!". People just doesn't know how easy is for a dog to dehydrate/get heat stroke when left under the summer sun with no water

So I'll just say: you are awesome and you probably saved that doggy's life

I got an anchor (well, a scale model of one, anyway) and what looked to me like an old radio transistor. Woulda preferred penises tbh. I am going to spin it again from this thread's link, see if it improves.

EDIT: uhhhh ok no penises butt... butt. A definite SA energy from this one lol.

Welp as a thread lurker I don't have any stories of porn in the library but I did find something that was missed by both a thrift store processor and me. Years ago I bought a Scrabble Cubes set to use for artwork and looked inside real quick in store to check that the cubes were indeed in the box. It wasn't until I got home and started emptying it out that I found someone's hidden deck of nude pin up playing cards. If I had to guess they'd be from the 60s or 70s and were surprisingly tasteful compared to modern porn/pinups at least.

Haha, that's great. A friend of mine got employed in the Spanish National Library, she got to catalogue materials donated by deceased writers' families to be kept there for conservation, manuscripts and letters and such. One of them had a small notebook full of handwritten poetry, and also, turns out, full of magazine cut-up naked girls stashed between pages in the back.

Once we had a fire at my library and the firefighters had to stop people from trying to get in.

My university had an evacuation alarm (it was a chem building, I think it was due to a bottle of acetylene, a very flammable gas, falling down and spewing gas everywhere). The librarian in there was an older, short man with an even shorter fuse. He had to be physically restrained from getting into a fistfight with some brat that said he had left his laptop in the library and he was going inside to recover it, firefighters or not.

The dean was not amused.
