Do you want to brighten your Friday with some fun library “stuff”.  Check out the New York Public Library Instagram Site.  Interspersed among the photos, old catalog cards, etc. the site including some reference questions gems like: Why do 18th century English paintings have so many squirrels in them, and how did they tame them so that they wouldn’t bite the painter? What kind of Apple did Eve eat?  What do you feed a salamander?  Do you have any books on human beings? The list goes on…

(Thanks, as always, to John Riley of Gabriel Books for providing ATG Quirkies!)
