I'll admit that I debated for a while to deep-six this wiki. To keep it manageable I don't include inspirational, digital-first, digital-only, self-published, or vanity press-published titles. Which kind of made me wonder "Does anyone find this list remotely useful when my scope is only The Big Six, Harlequin, Sourcebooks and Kensington?" That's the librarian part of my brain talking. At the end of the day, I'm going to keep trying to keep it up. Honestly, I like cover art. I also like seeing what's in the pipeline. I still don't have the time or inclination to broaden my scope for this wiki, but maybe it will one day spur someone else on to undertake those areas of publishing I'm currently "neglecting" because I'm only one person.
We have poultry. Yes, Library Poultry.
The library where I was transferred sits right next to a park. This park is apparently a fertile dumping ground for various animals that people no longer want to take care of. Hence, we've now got poultry. A couple of roosters with faulty internal clocks that like to crow all day long, and even some hens.
Apparently this Rogue Band Of Bibliophile Birds has been here for a while, and I don't see them leaving anytime soon. For one thing, I don't see coyotes coming this far into the interior (without help from a major disaster of some sort) and the animal folks are surprisingly hesitant to pick up any strays that they have to actually, you know, catch themselves. Unless someone is really hungry and wants one for their soup pot? The library has poultry.
(I wonder if we could sell their eggs as a fundraiser? I mean, have you seen how much free-range organic eggs cost? Yikes.)
I'm half-tempted to name them, but I don't actually know how many of them are out there. There are at least two roosters, but I was clueless about the hens until this morning. Maybe if I ever get a final head count we can have a Name The Library Poultry Contest?
