Twitter and Saturday

I hope you like the Twitter updates. I always mostly forget what I was going to post by the time I get home. Or I get lazy and fall asleep.

I had a kind of cute interaction today with this kid today. He was maybe... I dunno, 12 or so? One of our children's assistants left for library school, and another had surgery this past week, so the children's department was unstaffed today. Anyway, this young man comes to the reference desk.

Boy: Do you have any Naruto books?
Me: *Checks catalog* Well... we don't have any here, but some of our other branches have them. I can have some brought over for you. Which one were you looking for?
Boy: Number 18!
Me: *gets his library card and starts placing hold*
Boy: I read 16 already.
Me: ... Have you read 17?
Boy: *thinks for a second, then grins* Um... No!
Me: We should get you that one, too, huh?
Boy: Yes!
