A young girl came up to me and asked me for a list of all the vampire romance books in the library. I was in a hurry as there were several patrons behind her, so when I went to search our records for the word “vampire”, I was surprised when the system only came up with one hit.
…until I realized that I was searching the patron records. This man’s name is not vampire or anything like it, he doesn’t borrow a lot of vampire books, there was NO REASON for his name to come up, but for some reason when I typed in vampire, the system brought up his name.
So with that in mind, I think I need to go buy some holy water, a stake and some leather pants. Frankly, I knew what I was getting into when I became a librarian.
“I think of the Internet as its own community, and if you want to compare it to a local library, they’re going to catalog all the small things that happened. If you want to know what happened in a part of New York City in the 1700s, I know a library would have cool letters, or maps or something like that. Something like Star Wars Kid, you had to download the video and had to be involved in some weird Internet pocket to see it. But now a viral video gets posted six times and it becomes a vine, it becomes a gif set, and you kind of can’t escape it. I think it’s important to catalog these things because you know the history of the Internet.”

Phil sputtered, nearly choking on his school lunch (a bland chicken sandwich with too much ketchup to actually taste nice); his airway closed off a bit around the food as he tried to dislodge it from his throat, gasping for air while his friends slammed their fists on his back to help. “Excuse me?” Phil asked once he could properly breathe again, squinting at Chris with a discerning look.
Chris rolled his eyes, taking a bite of a chip before throwing it at Phil, watching as it landed in his cup of peaches. “You heard me, loser. I dared you to make Daniel Howell want to date Philip Lester.” He dragged out the names as if Phil was deaf, causing the latter to glare accusingly at his friend.
