The Hilarious, Embarrassing, And Bizarre Questions People Asked Librarians Before Google Existed

Librarian with card catalog

 

Imagine if search engines like Google didn’t exist. How would you find answers to your questions pre-internet?

Well, you’d probably have to go to the library and do some research. That, or ask a librarian to do it for you.

The New York Public Library recently discovered an archive of reference questions that people asked its librarians back in the last century.

The NYPL has been posting some of the questions on its social-media pages, and has given Business Insider permission to answer republish a selection of them here.

Cassandra’s Pick

Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuireSparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuire

Rose Marshall died in 1952 in Buckley Township, Michigan, run off the road by a man named Bobby Cross—a man who had sold his soul to live forever, and intended to use her death to pay the price of his immortality. Trouble was he didn’t ask Rose what she thought of the idea. It’s been more than sixty years since that night, and she’s still sixteen, and she’s still running. You can’t kill what’s already dead.

This was a read outside of my norm, but highly enjoyable. A hitchhiking ghost that helps those that die on the road find their way while trying to find her own way to win her freedom, as well as trying to stay a few steps ahead  of a man who never sleeps and has his sights set on the hitchhiker Rose. This storyline definitely made for a very interesting and fun read.

Evertrue by Brodi AshtonEvertrue by Brodi Ashton

Now that Nikki has rescued Jack, all she wants is to be with him and graduate high school. But Cole tricked Nikki into feeding off an Everliving three times, and she’s begun the process of turning into an Everliving herself . . . which means she must feed on a Forfeit soon–or die. Terrified for Nikki’s survival, Nikki and Jack begin a desperate attempt to reverse the process through any means they can think of. Even Cole, who they expected to fight them at every turn, has become an unlikely ally–but how long can it last? Nikki needs to feed on Cole to survive; Cole needs Nikki to gain the throne in the Everneath; Jack needs Nikki because she is everything to him–and together they must travel back to the Underworld to undo Nikki’s fate and make her mortal once more. But the Queen has not forgotten Nikki’s treachery, and she wants her destroyed for good. Will Nikki be forced to spend eternity in the Underworld–or can she bring down the Everneath once and for all? In this stunning conclusion to the Everneath trilogy, Brodi Ashton evokes the resiliency of the human spirit and the indomitable power of true love.

Eco-craft : recycle, recraft, restyle by Susan WasingerEco-Craft: Recycle, Recraft, Restyle by Susan Wasinger

Mason Jar Crafts by Lauren Elise Donaldson (available through SearchOhio)

While I was looking for upcycling craft books for ideas to do with the teens and for NatureConnect make-it take-it crafts, I came across these two books. They are full of great ideas using household items to create clever crafts and projects.

Who knew taking care of the planet could look so good? Eco Craft shows how to create 30 truly beautiful home décor projects that elevate environmental consciousness to stylish new heights. Every idea is amazingly clever: who would ever have imagined that plastic six-pack can holders could become a chic Moorish-inspired filigree tri-fold screen? Or that glass baby food jars would make a charming candle chandelier? Every project features at least one beauty shot in a modern home setting, easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step color photographs, with handy icons spotlight the key techniques, materials and the estimated time to complete each project.

The Good Girl by Mary KubicaThe Good Girl by Mary Kubica

“I’ve been following her for the past few days. I know where she buys her groceries, where she has her dry cleaning done, where she works. I don’t know the color of her eyes or what they look like when she’s scared. But I will.” Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn’t show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, at first Colin Thatcher seems like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia’s life. Colin’s job was to abduct Mia as part of a wild extortion plot and deliver her to his employers, but the plan takes an unexpected turn when Colin suddenly decides to hide Mia in a secluded cabin in rural Minnesota, evading the police and his deadly superiors. Mia’s mother, Eve, and detective Gabe Hoffman will stop at nothing to find them, but no one could have predicted the emotional entanglements that eventually cause this family’s world to shatter. An addictively suspenseful and tautly written thriller, The Good Girl is a propulsive debut that reveals how even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems….

100 days of real food : how we did it, what we learned, and 100 easy, wholesome recipes your family will love by Lisa Leake.100 Days of Real Food by Lisa Leake

Simple, family-friendly recipes and practical advice to help you ditch processed food and eat better every day! Thanks to Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food, Lisa Leake was given the wake-up call of her life when she realized that many of the foods she was feeding her family were actually “foodlike substances.” So she, her husband, and their two young girls completely overhauled their diets by pledging to go 100 days without eating highly processed or refined foods–a challenge she opened to readers on her blog. What she thought would be a short-term experiment turned out to have a huge impact on her personally. After wading through their fair share of challenges, experiencing unexpected improvements in health, and gaining a preference for fresh, wholesome meals, the Leakes happily adopted their commitment to real food as their “new normal.” Now Lisa shares her family’s story, offering insights and cost-conscious recipes everyone can use to enjoy wholesome natural food prepared with easily found ingredients such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, seafood, locally raised meats, whole-milk dairy products, nuts, natural sweeteners, and more. Filled with step-by-step instructions, this hands-on cookbook and guide includes: Advice for navigating the grocery store and making smart real food purchases Tips for reading ingredient labels 100 quick-and-easy recipes for such favorites as Homemade Chicken Nuggets, Whole Wheat Pasta with Kale Pesto Cream Sauce, Cheesy Broccoli Casserole, The Best Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker, and Cinnamon-Glazed Popcorn Meal plans and suggestions for kid-pleasing school lunches, parties, and snacks, A 10-day mini-starter program, and much more. 100 Days of Real Food offers all the support, encouragement, and guidance you’ll need to make these incredibly important and timely life changes.

Sharp Objects : a novel by Gillian FlynnSharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

WICKED above her hipbone, GIRL across her heart Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker’s troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, Camille’s first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. NASTY on her kneecap, BABYDOLL on her leg. Since she left town eight years ago, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed again in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille is haunted by the childhood tragedy she has spent her whole life trying to cut from her memory. HARMFUL on her wrist, WHORE on her ankle As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims–a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, Camille will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming. With its taut, crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable.

More Tax Prep Info

For over thirty years, the Akron-Summit County Public Library has been proud to assist the IRS and the State of Ohio during tax season, serving as a distribution point for tax forms and publications. Due to recent federal budget cuts, however, the IRS is no longer providing instruction booklets and most tax forms to public libraries. (Only the Federal 1040, 1040-A, and 1040-EZ forms will be provided.) Additionally, the State of Ohio will also be sending a greatly reduced supply of state tax forms.
