Confronted by the Great recession, as well as the usual collection of eccentric characters, the clientele, the Mallville Public Library is forced to make budget cuts. At the last moment Colleen the "old school reference librarian," retires and saves the staff from the horror of layoffs. A week later she’s replaced by library assistant Dyna, who is smart, savvy and snarky. In the midst of all this, YA librarian Dewey confronts the looming responsibilities of fatherhood. Once again Ambaum and Barnes have turned the day to day operations of a library into steady stream of LOL comic strips. ( )

Another great Unshelved anthology. This one has a special place in my heart because an employee in my library system suggested the name, and there's a series of strips in it inspired by a story sent in by a coworker in my department. Plus the bonus material incluces what may be the only "guest" Questionable Content strip that did *not* disappoint me. ( )

Another winner. The conference extra material is always a special pleasure, since it is new to most readers. Was making Mel a lesbian a new (casually dropped) detail? ( )
