a quiet prostitute in the library

Handwritten-NoteLibraries provide a great many unofficial services we don’t learn about in library school. According to a recent news story, a woman in Nashua, New Hampshire has been arrested for solicitation in the Tewksbury Public Library. She and the undercover detective communicated using written notes so as not to disturb the library patrons. Yay?

The public comments on this story are predictably amusing. I’ll share a couple of non-public comments made to me:

“Was she on the library staff? I only ask because so many library workers find it necessary to supplement their incomes by taking on second jobs.”

“I get the impression that [college and university libraries] they are among the most favored places for assignations. However, with the increased use of motorized compact shelving I worry about unwary ‘patrons’ being crushed.”

Thanks, Megan Lewis!
