Product description


"Librarians will surely nod their heads and either sigh or laugh. As they say at the library: Check it out." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Libraries, contrary to popular belief, are often full of hijinks, odd patrons and ridiculous requests. Gina Sheridan's book, I Work at a Public Library, describes this in a perfectly charming way. The beautiful thing about Gina's outlook is that...she's gracious, kind and helpful in every scenario. Just like you'd hope your librarian would be." --Racket Magazine

"If you love bookstores and libraries (and especially if you've ever worked in one), you'll enjoy [this] book." --GeekDad.com

About the Author

Gina Sheridan is a librarian in St. Louis, Missouri, where she lives with her partner Travis. When she's not collecting stories, she's exploring cemeteries, dressing up her cats, or taking pictures of things overlooked by regular people. You can visit her website at www.iworkatapubliclibrary.com.
