Book: Library Mascot Cage Match: an Unshelved Collection
Authors: Bill Barnes and Gene Ambaum
Publication: 2005 (Overdue Media)
When I walk my books into the library instead of using the book drop outside, I get distracted by stuff like this.
It’s a collection of the comic strip Unshelved (which is online and updates five days a week; your move, xkcd), so there’s no overarching plotline except that library life is crazy, so to sum up why I love this, just read the dialogue of this particular strip.
Patron: Those teenagers are talking on the pay phone!
Dewey (teen librarian): Sorry, that’s allowed.
Patron: And playing games on the computer!
Dewey: Also okay.
Patron: Now they’re tearing up library books!
Dewey: No they’re not.
Patron: How did you know?
Dewey: We can sense it. Part of our training on Dagobah.
