Books You Thought Libraries Were Dull

Gawker has two interesting bits of library-based news this morning. First, the Wisconsin lady whose mugshot is to the left of this writing was arrested on August 6th for having two overdue library books. The late fees totaled almost 38 dollars. It’s true that the books were Oprah pick White Oleander and Dan Brown awfulness Angels & Demons, but I still think she’s cute. She’s got the crazy eyes.
Second, a Michigan librarian got fired for publishing a tell-all book about being a librarian. Gawker has the publisher’s description of the book:
“Open this book and you’ll meet the naked patron, the greedy, unenlightened patrons, destination hell, the masturbator, horny old men, Mr. Three Hats, and a menagerie of other characters you never dreamt were housed at your public library.”
I can’t fucking wait to read this book.
