Peculiar Questions and Practical Answers by the New York Public Library

Before there was phone-a-friend or Google, librarians fielded questions, from the basic to the we’re-not-doing-your-homework-for-you. The New York Public Library discovered a cache of cards recording the questions asked of their librarians over decades of the 20th century and decided to share them in this book. With 21st-century resources and a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor, Peculiar Questions may not have the answers the original askers expected (or wanted), but the book is completely entertaining. As a catalog of the curiosity and needs of humanity, this is a perfect gift for any bibliophile or library lover. - Jocelyn
