Would you use a tampon as a bookmark? Here are a few things that #librarians have found in returned books. Thanks Medium for this, uh… lovely insight!
Do you think of library work as always placid and pleasant? Then think about having to handle the following objects which were found in returned library books:
A dead frog
A used band-aid
A leaking Ketchup packet.
A dozen baby cockroaches
A used Q-Tip
A used condom (In a Bible!)
A grilled cheese sandwich
An ad for lap dances (in a children’s book!)
A dirty diaper
A slice of bologna
Attention library patrons! The next time you’re tempted to mark your place in one of our books with insects, snacks, porn or anything that used to be part of your body? Please do us library workers a big favor and JUST DOG-EAR THE @#$% PAGE!
