Hey guys, gunna go to my local library today and get a card.
I go there afew times a week and hang out to read, I always say hello to the people working there but I have yet to get a card.
Any tips on how to go about doing this?
What book should I check out first to make a good impression?
On my reading list I have "A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man" by Joyce, but Im scared that will make me look like a pretentious tryhard
>>
>What book should I check out first to make a good impression?

Now that's what I call autism.

Ask for a card, take out any book you want, nobody gives a fuck you autist

>implying i give a shit what a librarian making 20k a year thinks
>implying your MLS is relevant
>implying you aren't just a glorified cashier
>implying your job isn't being replaced by self-checkout machines

now shut up and scan my books
>>
>>7627213
It requires a 4 year degree and a 2 year training program you uneducated plebeian
The assistants can be kids who are in school or whatever, but a Librarian requires 6 years of school total
>>
>>7627175
Are you fucking autistic or something? You're really fucking asking us how you should loan your first fucking book from the library?

You're an imbecile.
>>
Always leave a tip with the receptionist after checking out
>>
>>7627227
this
10% of the value of the book you checked out
>>
>>7627222

>implying your MLS is relevant

Fuck off you materialistic degenerate

>>7627244
The majority of the best writers in history were aristocratic and wealthy as fuck. It's a lot easier to focus on art and literature when you aren't busy wagekeking it up and worrying about going homeless :)

But no tell me more about your 6 years of library school and how that has contributed to your /literary lifestyle/

Also
>using literary lifestyle unironically
Sure got reddit in here

I'm amused by this on the grounds that I've seen previous threads about "All great writers ever were rich/aristocratic, what chance do I, as a lower/middle class writer have?" Where people struggled to be positive.

Literally just the John Green of Elizabethan England, he was popular among the uneducated for a reason
Pandered to the lowest common denominator, just because he is old doesnt mean he is good, I bet you think AC/DC is good also, lmao
>>
>>7627290
If you consider Dumas, Tolstoy and fucking Shakespeare shit, then why don't you go ahead and tell us what authors you think are good.
>>
>>7627302
You're a fucking retard, do you not realize how much he's contributed to the English language? To say that he's great is a fucking understatement.

hohohohoho
>>
>>7627343
t. every poorfag in denial who wished he was actually rich
>>
>>7627348
Negative. Poor people care more about money because it actually matters to them where their next meal is coming from. The kids of rich people are the ones who don't care because they never had to learn the value of it. 2/10 bait.
>>
>>7627359
Uhm I think he said the opposite of what you think he said, or else you're saying something different from what I think you're saying.

He's saying poor people actually care a lot about money but pretend/are in denial about it/shitpost about it on 4chan, which is what you're saying ("poor people care more about money because it actually matters to them") as well.
>>
>>7627363
Then what he's saying is idiotic.
>>
>>7627368
aren't we all idiots
>>
>>7627370
Touché,
