"Sit down, my dear, " says the fortuneteller. "Lets see what the future holds." She draws her robe around the chair, addresses her crystal ball. "Youre a librarian?" she says, rubbing the ball. "Your future? You will enjoy--oops, its changing.... You will go on a long--oops, its changing again!" Sound familiar? Its just one of the many wry observations from cartoonist Benita Epstein. One could say that she sees the libraryland as a place full of offbeat characters, from interlibrary loan sharks to patrons who need references--for their resumes, of course. Or as a technological jungle where signs read "Beware of the DOS." Or as a land of words, where oxymorons are served at cocktail parties. In short, she sees a land with which we are all familiar, a place called libraryland, where we can always enjoy a good chuckle and sometimes even a belly laugh. These cartoons are sure to cause both.
