flabbergasted and flustered and all fired up

I'm not sure about the local library thing.

We went last week and got our card
and they let us each get 1 book.
we weren't there very long, only picking out 1 book each.
(Except that they had some books for sale - paperbacks were only $ .25, so I had to look through all 3 carts.
It was time well spent; 
I got my very own copy of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society which just thrills me to no end.)

So, today, being Wednesday, we went back to the library.
The adult section is okay,
but ya'll!
The children's room is a nightmare!
You should see the way they shelve the books.

Here - let me give you just a peek

Lest you think that's an anomaly:


They don't bother alphabetizing the books except by the first letter.

I just don't even know what to say.

I was so stressed I had to get out of there - and I wasn't even looking for anything in particular.
But if I was - the chance of me finding it would be slim.

I'm going to give it my best shot.
I really want the local library to work for us.
But I'm just not sure it's going to.


  1. OMG!!! The horror!! THAT is an atrosity!! I would be writing someone a letter!!

  2. I feel your pain. I hate our local library. The $40/yr for the FSM library is a bargain.


You're leaving me a comment?? Oh goody! I love comments :-)
