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 spent on longer-form works.
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?
