Great moments in librarianship

From my Washington DC correspondent —

I just received a response at  reference desk that was right up there with “Have you looked in the card catalog?” I went to DC Public to look at the Washingtoniana photo collection. Walked up to the reference desk and told the librarian what I wanted.  “You’ll need to make an appointment.”  I said, “OK, can I make an appointment?”  She: “No, you need to call when I’m in my office. I can’t look at my Outlook calendar here.”

I was so stunned I couldn’t even really get mad.

I love librarians.
