dispatches from a public librarian

Scott Douglas es un bibliotecario de Anaheim que escribe en McSweeney's sobre asuntos de bibliotecarios.

There's a stereotype about librarian jobs that goes something along the lines of "all librarians ever do is sit around all day and wait for someone to ask for a book." This is simply not the case. For starters, most people don't even know how to read anymore, and the few that do don't come to the library—they're obviously smart, and therefore well off financially, and therefore go to Amazon.com to buy books, which they in turn donate to the library, which the library sells at a book sale, from which proceeds go to buy new computers.
