november was a good month

most libraries don’t use these check out slips now because we get our borrowing stats from our library management systems.  the melbourne athenaeum library is one of the few libraries that does still use them, and I checked a book out to  a patron a couple of weeks ago with a last use date of 1974.  that was over 30 years ago!

this t shirt from threadless is kind of cool and not just for librarians (but not as cool as my jump mania monster truck t shirt).  there’s lots of really cheesy ‘librarian wear’ available. i recently saw some website dedicated to t shirts and other merchandise with library slogans on it. I would advise all to avoid unless you actually do wish to announce to the world that you don’t have a very interesting social life. great gifts for your non librarians friends though.
