LIBRARY SIGNS EXPLAINED



bike The Librarian is having car trouble, and is trying to get here as quickly as they can.
heart The Librarian had a hot date last night, and may possibly be in love. This is a good time to ask for extra help or favours.
mind The Librarian has a lot on his/her mind at the moment. Unless it's very important, urgent, or something the Librarian might be interested in, come back later.
3 people Please do not stereotype librarians - we are all different.
food The Librarians are having a meal break. They are eating in a specially designated staff area for food consumption. This does NOT mean YOU are allowed to eat in the library.
walking The Librarian has taken some time out and gone for a walk. Best to give them some space when they get back.
female The Librarian is wearing a new dress. It is in your best interests to make a positive comment.
talking The Librarians are having a conversation. Please don't interrupt.
big/small arrows People larger than me can go past this point, smaller or timid people have to stop here.
smoker The Librarian has gone outside for a quick smoke. Although they won't smell so good when they come back, they'll be much more relaxed. You figure out which is better.
trash You were warned about saying something nice about the librarian's new dress, you were told not to interrupt a librarian's conversation. You not only ignored this, but you objected to meal and smoking breaks. We explained already why the Librarian was late to work. Your borrower card has now been torn up.
turn If you are going to use that sort of language, you might as well turn around and leave right now.
closed The library is closed. No, we won't open it up so you can get that book for the assignment due tomorrow. No, you can't come in a little early so you can get home to watch the cable movie. No, we don't open outside the advertised hours so you can check your email. Besides, didn't your library card get torn up?
