You Really DO Say the Darndest Things!

We love to talk with children and hear all about what they are thinking about. Here are some interesting snippets from conversations we've had at the reference desk recently....

A little girl claimed she doesn’t want to be a human, but she did want to be "humongous underwear."

Joke of the day from a yong man: “Know why there are few buildings taller than the library? Because there are so many stories in it!”

Boy: “Can you find the squirrel in there?” Mom: “I think you mean the GERBIL.”

“There are two camps of kids at my school, Camp Percy Jackson and Camp Harry Potter. If I read a Percy Jackson book, I’d be a traitor! It’s gods vs. wizards!”

Preschooler: “I don’t want to play on the iPad because I wanna play on the pirate boat!”
