Heather Corners a Collection Development Librarian in a Dream She Had Last Night
Heather:Hi. So, I guess I'm weird to imagine this scenario, which I will undoubtedly publish on Tumblr for all to see.
CDL:Yep. *files nails*
Heather:Well, I haven't gotten an answer on Twitter, and it's important.
CDL:Shoot. Not too directly, though. You're standing kinda close, lady.
Heather:Sorry. *takes two steps back; clears throat* Here goes: Are public librarians interested in fiction and nonfiction shorts, as well as short story offshoots of popular franchises?
CDL:Interested, yes. Anything to broaden and deepen our collections. But our money is probably better spent on longer-form works. Though the circ spikes from short works would be nice.
Heather:Is that your official answer?
CDL:Of course it is! I'm a professional, baby.
Heather:*wakes up with a cat on her face* I gotta find me a real-life librarian. Anyone out there? Anyone?
