Life is never dull when you work in a public library.

It's the melting pot of humanity.

Gina Sheridan, in her blog inspired book, I Work at a Public Library, perfectly captures the crazy, humorous, odd, quirky, sometimes questionable scenarios one may encounter at the library.

As a library employee, I thoroughly related to this book. Library patrons seem to be the same regardless of where you live.

One of my favorites: Gina helps a patron indulge on Krispy Kreme donuts. It's precious. A must read.

It made me wish I'd chronicled all of my patron queries over the years.

It was delightful.
