Library Folk

literary haven turned weirdo deathtrap

I’m not embarrassed to say that I go to the library ever now and again. Hard to believe but there are actually some things of worth that can be found in your local library.

The problem though is that it is inhabited by the quirky, freaky, offbeat, oddball, wacky, kooky people spread throughout society.

Every single time I’m wondering through the aisles of knowledge I overhear the labored breathing of an enormously fat man sitting at a chair in front of a low-grade computer.Also, every computer is taken at all times by some outlandish character that clearly does not have access to a computer any other way.

At the checkout line ahead of me is always some type of middle-aged woman with their little brat kid renting way too many DVDs for even a cinephile.

No one seems to check out a book that doesn’t have some tie to romance and vampires.

Actually I honestly don’t think anyone would notice if all the books in my local library just magically vanished. As long as they have their internet, motivational tapes, B-movie DVDs, and tables to play Dungeons and Dragons who gives a hoot about literature or raising your intelligence?

I always thought that the nerds and geeks dominated the library.

Now it just looks like the welfare department runs the show.
