If You Give a Librarian a Cookie

March 13, 2020 | 1

Snacking while reading is a long-honored activity, though it hasn’t always been appreciated by librarians. NPR reports on a Cambridge University librarian opening up a rare book from the 16th century only to find a half-eaten chocolate chip cookie. “The librarian guesses this cookie could’ve come from the school that donated the book 50 years ago. The library wrote online it is happy to provide bookmarks, but, quote, ‘Please don’t use baked goods.'”
