You asked for it Jenny...

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
a tale of a Museum growing.
That started with a Library
and the space it was employing.

The Director was an ambitious man,
the Board was just the same.
Four Librarians packed up the books
and moved them all away.

And moved them all away.
(sound of rolling book trucks)

The books were very cumbersome,
the archive files were slick.
If not for the strength of the Librarians
the Library would be lost,
the Library would be lost.

The Library moved in its' new home,
a dark and cold sad room,
with the Archivist, the Cataloger,
the Collections Assistant, and their books,
the Volunteers, and the files,
here in the Library!

So this is the tale of Librarians,
they're here for three more years.
They'll have to make the best of things
this place makes us quite scared.

The Archivist and the Collections Assistant
will do their very best,
to make the others comfortable
in their dismal dank dark nest.

No phones! No lights! No Internet!
Not a single luxury,
like Librarians of the 1980's,it's primative as can be.
So join us here each day my friends,
to experience Libraries past,
from three stranded Librarians,
here in our Library!

It's exactly what I wanted to be reading whilst eating my lentil-and-red-bean chili! Possibly not what YOU wanted, but it does make for a very entertaining story. And now I have the Gilligan's Island them in my head, which should keep me entertained for HOURS. Thanks!
