Need to burn time?

Go to and click random articles repeatedly for any length of time. Warning: results include hysterical laughter, insanity and much shushing. (You get away with it only if you're on the clock; patrons can never behave in this manner.)

The New SuperHeros!

Librarian Action Figure
You can have all the books, magazines, periodicals, journals, videos, and CD ROMs in the world, but without a librarian you'll be frustrated and overwhelmed before you can say "Dewey Decimal System." And although most librarians can't travel faster than a speeding bullet, or leap over tall buildings in a single bound, they can direct you to an article on the physics of speed, an instructional pamphlet on high jumping, and a book of photographs of the world's tallest buildings. Each 5" tall, hard plastic Librarian Action Figure is modeled after Nancy Pearl, a real-life librarian in the Seattle area. Press the button on her back and her arm will move with amazing "shushing action!" Comes with a tiny plastic book and a stack of random literature. The card features a brief history of libraries on the back as well as a realistic check-out card in a classic library sleeve along with two bookmarks and a Nancy Pearl trading card!

Is strictly forbidden! And Librarians are not potential “Sparkees,” so take your sparkin’ ambitions some place else!

Thank You,
The Library Staff

And if this warning is not immediately obeyed, you can expect the entire library staff to chase you…with sharp objects. Just so you know…

This is what I will do...

I quit!!!!
