Via Libraryola, there is another Ning community out there for librarians who have weblogs!

Mt. Kisco needed to move their library books to a new building and came up with a great way to do it that got the community involved. Sometimes library PR can be fun!

Speaking of PR, here's an article to law librarians on how to make yourselves known as the indispensable creatures you are. (We've done most of the things listed. Now we're really really really busy. It's a little out of control.)

Oh, the things you'll find in books. Have you heard the one about bacon used as a bookmark yet? True story.

And finally...Search Engine Smackdown! Test your knowledge of Google et al and beat someone up. My Sergey Brin knocked out Bill Gates, but it was a struggle.

Blogger Cassandra: At the public library it was not unusual for an unfortunate library clerk to find feces, semen, or snot in returned library books.

At Steely, I once found a Playboy centerfold.

It's always an adventure, that's for sure.

Anonymous Bunny Easterling: Ah yes...strange objects in library books.....

In my short stint as a public librarian I found a hypodermic needle (used of course...are there any other kind in downtown Cincy)...but the best so far was a romance novel that had a bacon strip in it being used as a bookmark (I assume....)

A greasy-@ss bacon strip.....

Working in a public library is enough to make a monkey blush....
