It helps to have a sense of humor in the workplace. For librarians, Gene Ambaum and Bill Barnes have created a comic strip that chronicles the absurdities of working in the library. This is one of several collections of their strips which cover everything from unusual patron questions to generation gaps to programming. A lot of people have misconceptions about what working in a library is like--you must read all day, all the people must be really nice, etc. In reality, it's mostly fun and rewarding but sometimes, well, let's just say you go home with a lot of stories. What Would Dewey Do? contains some of those stories familiar to librarians everywhere.
