I Say A Little Prayer For...Books

This was found in the summer reading sign-up bin. I know it's the work of a library prankster, but I'm trying to be more optimistic these days, so I'm going to look at it as a sign of encouragement. Everyone has summer reading goals!

Does anyone know what the star sign is for "infinity"?
I only wish I had been around when the big guy made his appearance at the library. I would have tried to ingratiate myself a bit more. You know, a little atonement, a little groveling, a little gnashing of the teeth. Then maybe libraries wouldn't have been reduced to five-day service thanks to the new NYC budget agreement.

In short: blergghhhhh. We don't know any of the exact numbers yet or what it all means in terms of operating hours or layoffs for the library, but we should be hearing soon. We might need a Hail Mary pass on this one. Pray for us.


  1. I was recently in New York, and I stopped by the library (guessing the main branch?) to see the 100 years exhibit. It was amazing! I also made sure to sign the petitions - even though I'm in Houston. Libraries should be getting budget increases, not cuts. Here's hoping for the best!

    P.S. Is the Brooklyn library part of the NY library system?

  2. It's great, isn't it?

    Brooklyn has its own library system (NYPL and Queens are separate) but we all basically get funded from the same place - so, thank you for signing the petition! :)

  3. Lol on the registration and the waiting is even tougher when we know the answer is around the corner. Good luck to all of us!
