Carol works at the Stapleton Library at IUP. January 5, 2018 is her last day. She started working in 1970. I was a Junior that year at IUP, and spent more time in art studios for my Art Major, so I did not know Carol then.
A few years ago, when I returned to the area, I use the Indiana Free Library and the IUP library for computer connection to the world. When Carol heard a few of my jokes and riddles, she would tell me some “Library Humor” to share with the crew at the Indiana Free Library. It was a back and forth humor challenge and I was the messenger. She has many to share but my favorite story from Carol was the following:
She would explain that late at night when the library was closed, all the books had time to relax and have conversation with one another. How she heard this actual conversation is still a mystery but this is what she heard. A Math Book and a History Book were having a conversation and the Math book said to the History book. “I’ve got problems!”
All the best to you Carol!
