A silent Library is a sad Library. A Library without patrons on whom to pile books and tales and knowing and magazines full of up-to-the-minute politickal fashions and atlases and plays in pentameter! A Library should be full of exclamations! Shouts of delight and horror as the wonders of the world are discovered or the lies of the heavens uncovered or the wild adventures of devil-knows-who sent romping out of the pages. A Library should be full of now-just-a-minutes and that-can’t-be-rights and scientifick folk running skelter to prove somebody wrong. It should positively vibrate with laughing at comedies and sobbing at tragedies, it should echo with gasps as decent ladies glimpse indecent things and indecent ladies stumble upon secret and scandalous decencies! A Library should not shush; it should roar!

Found while weeding. I think there are a few of us here in the tumblarian community who can make this our own.

This is…amazing.

"Jill’s excited about entering her basset hound, Fletcher, in the big dog show, so she and her best friend, Gwen, go to the library to learn about training dogs.

But they’re puzzled and surprised to find that many pictures are cut out of the special dog books they’ve borrowed. Who would want to destroy library books? Luckily there’s strange clue on one page and that’s enough to get super sleuths started on their search.

The books are due back soon and Jill and Gwen don’t want to be blamed for ruining them. But someone is to blame. Will they find the person in time?"

Books are just about the Librarian’s most favorite thing in the entire world. Reading them can take you on exciting adventures in far-off lands, introduce you to new friends and cultures, and let you discover poetry, classic literature, science fiction and much more. (via LEGO.com Minifigures : Bios - Series 10 - Librarian)


The new LEGO librarian minifig. Appreciate the Oranges and Peaches reference.
