Micropigs and Einstein’s Eyeballs: What I Learned From Magazines This Week.

It is the one year anniversary of Our Bodies, Our Shelves by humorist and Librarian Roz Warren.  Released on National Librarian Day last year, the book earned so much support from this brave community that deals with all types of people on a daily basis.  Some more fun today to  commemorate the book and, of course, this year’s National Librarian Day which is April 12th. – HOPress
