Embedded in the carpet of the new Gungahlin Public Library in Canberra, Australia.



  1. Warms a comic loving, book reading librarian’s heart. And in one of New Zealand’s bigger states ( Australians may laugh at this)

  2. And this comment is just one of the things that makes Neil Gaiman a rock star in the minds of most librarians (at least those of us who love comics).

  3. Paul,

    A libertarian would tell you that the free market will eventually determine which one of those answers is correct and if it doesn’t it’s because of government interference.

  4. Aside from the needing a semi-colon and not a comma, surely a librarian doesn’t simply give you the right answer, but shows you how to find it yourself, no?

  5. Well said, indeed. If you have not already read, This Book is Overdue, How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson, you must. It is an entertaining call to arms.
