Let’s elaborate on the last statistic. Yesterday, we returned to the library to find a solitary book cocooned in plastic wrap furtively stashed ┬áin a corner of the upstairs reference desk. We approached with caution – what untold moldy horrors could lurk within? Librarian Prendergast bravely picked up the unknown element, and then a disembodied voice floated up from below,

Beware…BEWARE! That book contains a piece of pie…which actually looked like it was quite delicious at one point. Seriously, who does that – ruins a piece of pie by putting it in a book?! Anyway, beware…BEWARE!

Thanks, Anthony from maintenance. And by the way, great disembodied voice. Really, quite impressive.

As an aside, pie does not make a good bookmark. Pie is intended to be enjoyed by people, not pages. Yes, sometimes you have to eat your words. But please, not ones borrowed from the library.

…Oh, were you looking for actual information? From librarians? Try scheduling an individual appointment here.

-Signing off, Jenny (Apple Pie) Barrows and Kit (Blueberry Pie) Gette (no really, bring us pie)
