Big Trouble in Little Comics
Time for another comic, and this one deals with something near and dear to my heart: libraries. For those who don’t know, I work in a library now. It’s a great gig, really, you should all try it. Anyway, one thing that I notice all the time is that many people still view libraries as exactly what they see on TV; that is, the stuffy old librarian, constantly shushing people. Not an ounce of life in the place. This, I can assure you, is quite incorrect. In fact, working in the youth section, I can tell you we get pretty loud. Anyway, I wanted to make a comic about libraries to show that, as someone once said, the times they are a-changin’. If you haven’t been to a library in a while, I suggest you get back in the habit. Books and movies for free?! That’s too good to be true. Except it’s not. I could go on about libraries and how great they are for paragraphs and paragraphs (much of my childhood was spent in the library I work in now), but I’ll just get to the comic. But, before I go, I’d like to say get out and support your local library!
