Consider the image above and the quotes below and weave a tale about a library or a librarian. 

Neil Gaiman perfectly describes what’s happening in digital times: “Google can bring you back 100,000 answers, a librarian can bring you back the right one.”

An original idea. That can’t be too hard. The library must be full of them.

–Stephen Fry

The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.

–Albert Einstein

In the nonstop tsunami of global information, librarians provide us with floaties and teach us to swim.

–Linton Weeks

If I was a book, I would like to be a library book, so I would be taken home by all different sorts of kids.

–Cornelia Funke

A truly great library contains something in it to offend everyone.

–Jo Godwin

Rule number one: Don’t fuck with librarians.

–Neil Gaiman

Librarians are the secret masters of the world. They control information. Don’t ever piss one off.

–Spider Robinson

    Hi Michael! Interesting as this week;s TW and Patricia’s In Other Words relate to libraries.
    I’ve done one of my shortest ever posts on this, but think it might cover volumes!

    Hi Michael. Another fine tale weaver prompt. I might even have another library story swirling around in my cob-webbed creative mind.
