The Truth of being a Librarian

Miss Information is as helpful as her name implies at her local library. Where the woman dwells is a mystery I'm detremined to unravel, but lack the proper tools to do it.

The challenges of being a librarian, however, are captured in full detail, along with the characters met.

Miss Information was sitting minding her own business at the Reference Desk when a Circ Desk clerk approached her, accompanied by a patron. It seems the gentleman hadn’t brought his library card because he doesn’t “carry things like that around with him”. He did however have a photocopy of the card and a photocopied piece of ID.

Her character descriptions remind me of novels. It must be something in the stacks.
