And, now what time is it? It’s time for those new upcoming books scheduled to be released between April 15 and May 14, 2015. And, what does Kay say? She says these are the release dates, not the date they will be hitting the library shelves.

Historical romances take place before 1945. A heavy emphasis is placed on the development of a romantic relationship. Subgenres include medievals, American West and regencies.

Happily, humor happens

These are a few funnies I have found recently:

#1. There is a Verizon vehicle with a “this vehicle makes frequent stops” sticker on the back.  What – they pull over & say, “Can you hear me now?”

#2 – From another librarian: “Helped a patron locate book titled The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values, and Spiritual Growth. It was shelved immediately next to F**k It Therapy. I know which one I’D rather read!”

#3 – The first book I glanced at today had the title I Hunt Kittens – at least, I thought it did. The second was Slow Death by Rubber Duck.  I thought the first was just bizarre until I looked again & it was I Hunt Killers.  OK – that’s better.  I thought the second was a silly mystery title until I read the sub-title, The Hidden Dangers of Everyday Things;  not a mystery at all.  They both went from intriguing to meh.

#4 – I used the key words “slow death and rubber” to pull up the above title:  The Joy of Sex was the only other hit with those key words.  I don’t really want to know.

#5 – A book on canoeing was returned soaking wet.  (Maybe they should have read it before the canoe trip.)

#6 –  A book on dog training was returned with the corners chewed off.  (They should probably have read it, not teased the dog with it.)

# 7 – This one speaks for itself.

Trivia: Do you know which movie Lego is playfully referring to with the book title Oranges and Peaches?

Trivia: Do you know which movie Lego is playfully referring to with the book title Oranges and Peaches?

Controversial as her action figure has proven to be, I’m a fan of the shushing Nancy Pearl , so you can imagine my delight upon discovering that Lego has introduced a Lego Librarian.  Stereotypical?  Sure, but in a fun way.  The Lego Librarian’s biography applauds the benefits of reading and suggests that the world would be a better place if everyone read more — what’s not to like about that?

Even better than the Lego Librarian, however, are Mr. Library Dude’s reinterpretations of the Lego Librarian — my favorites are the Alternalibrarian and the Children’s Librarian.  What are yours?

Before The Walking Dead, before the CDC published their Zombie Pandemic Preparedness Guide, before Fort Wayne’s first annual Zombie Walk in 2008, there was a little video made by the staff at the Allen County Public Library.  What can we say?  We’re always on the alert for the next big thing and we’ve got your back!
