Abstract:

"The co-authors have gathered vignettes of different kinds of library service -- their own and colleagues' from past decades and present them to you for your entertainment. Funny, sad, or a little strange and quirky, the one thing that all of the stories have in common is that each one involves a library or a librarian. You will also find photos of libraries from all over. You just might see your local library between these covers. Also you might recognize yourself as the subject of one or more of the stories. But not to worry: no actual names of characters were used, so your secret is safe."--Back cover.
