…like … how to become a jellyfish … in the world of business…

“Reading Outside the Box” is a web series starring Mr. Peter, a children’s librarian. In each episode, he unboxes a box of books and talks about them, whether he actually knows anything about them or not. In this episode, he and another children’s librarian, Miss Abby, made me laugh like six times.

Thanks, Peter!

Doctor Strange library shenanigan

Doctor Strange steals a bunch of forbidden books from the library in the (fictional) city of Kamar- Taj while Wong, the librarian, listens to Beyonce. (Strange, teasing Wong for using only one name, has recommended he listen to that artist; he’s also mentioned Bono, Adele, and others.)

loud eating in Tutt Library

The best thing about this shenanigan, to me, isn’t that it takes place at my own library (I’m in charge of Special Collections at Colorado College). No, the best thing about it is that my new library director, JoAnn Jacoby, sent this link to the whole library staff saying it had gotten almost 4 million hits on youtube, whereas this other video — of JoAnn talking about libraries — has gotten — well — somewhat fewer (99 as of this moment).

“Kiwi the miniature therapy horse was awarded an advanced degree today at UNC Health Sciences Library — a Master of Library Shenanigans.”

(As far as I know, this degree is not affiliated with the Library Shenanigans blog.)

Thanks, Joan Petit!

shushing already-quiet people

Um … I’m sorry, everybody. But I had to include this as a library shenanigan. It’s actually like twelve different shenanigans piled together.

Thanks, Marianne Aldrich!

Artist Bill Domonkos uses archival images in the public domain to make seriously spooky animated gifs.

Thanks, Dina Wood!

Happy Halloween, everybody!

library fashion show

The New Hanover County Public Library in North Carolina held a contest in 2015 for clothing and accessories made from discarded library books and cassette tapes. You can view the runway show above and the full details here. You’re too late to sign up for the 2016 contest, but perhaps they’ll do it again next year. Thanks, Tom Lovell!
