Librarians deal with the public daily, so it goes without saying that they all have some pretty crazy stories about patrons and the requests they get. People seem to assume that librarians either know or can find the answer to just about any question, and…well, that’s true.

Which folks have known forever, as these questions received by NY librarians from the 1940s-1980s prove without a doubt.

You know those librarians answered each and every one of those questions. Because they’re awesome, and also hilarious.

Seriously. Go hug your librarian friend today…and then buy them a beer and listen to their stories. Everyone wins.
