    Is Unshelved finished?

    I like it! Thanks for putting the names of the characters below for our information. I’m looking forward to meeting all of them.

    1. Chris says:

      Thanks! There’s a bunch more to come!

    2. LauraRose says:

      Ha! I didn’t see that. Now I have to go reread all of them. Luckily there are only a few so far.

      1. LauraRose says:

        I’m replying to myself after re-reading:
        There’s a Laura and she wears funny hats and has purply hair. I am So Excited!

    I love the new characters, and I really love the new, larger format. Much easier on my aging eyes.

    1. Chris says:

      Thanks 🙂

  4. Cheryl Keane says:

    Enjoying the new strip. Agree with the other comments re larger format and character names at the bottom.

  5. Ida says:

    Why is the YA librarian a cross looking woman in a dowdy dress????

  6. Sue Lester says:

    I don’t think Esther works in Youth Services. At our library, someone from Collection Services does the weeding.

    1. Beth Daly says:

      At our library, Librarians are also ‘Selectors’. Each has a section of the collection to maintain: planning, buying, weeding, dealing with purchase requests. It’s supposed to make sure the people maintaining the collection also meet with patrons and stay in touch with the real world.

    Love the new strip! Good luck with it!

  8. Eva says:

    I personally love Esther. I’m sure she was a tech servs librarian in the past, but when it got automated, they moved her to a new position that was created or became available: YA librarian! I’ve seen cataloguers become reference librarians in my academic library for this very reason (the cutting back of technical services) – not the best situation, but necessary.

    1. Eve says:

      Hey! I’m a tech services librarian and I am neither cross nor likely to wear a dowdy dress!

    I’m loving the new strip. Fun, similar enough with Unshelved that it feels like home already.

    1. Chris says:

      Thanks 🙂
