Patron 1: I found all these tote bags in your dumpster!

Patron 1: I can’t believe you threw them out.
Jody: You don't have to believe it, the evidence is in your hands.

Patron 1: I mean that you shouldn’t have thrown them out. They’re still useful.
Jody: I had reasons.

Patron 2: Look, the juice stain really isn’t that bad.
Patron 3: Is this where I can donate old books that I never read?

    Is it wrong I was hoping this comic wouldn’t be found? (404…)

      Nope. Expected the same thing.

    Most libraries do accept donations of books–that are, we hope, not full of mold; vermin, food or beverage, or blood or other bodily fluid stains; or worse (if that’s possible); or damaged beyond use; etc.–but not usually at the circ or ref desks.

    But, that’s what I love about this strip, the wonderfully crazy, absurd scenarios and kooky patrons Gene and Chris are always bringing to life! There are more than a few of these quirky incidents and “colorful” users in real life settings as some of the “based on true story” tales featured in Library COMIC have shown. I daresay some of the reality is even stranger than the fiction!

    I wish these were ” crazy, absurd scenarios and kooky patrons” rather than just another day.

      Note above; “I daresay some of the reality is even stranger than the fiction!”
