An Hour in Reference...

I worked the Reference Desk in the Adult Services Department today alone for an hour and these were my favorite reference questions from that hour:

1.) "please list all states that have forest fires and then list every governor of those states along with their addresses"

2.) "please name all the newspapers serving Itasca, IL"

3.) "I have a 2 foot statue of Native American holding a pan. It appears as though he has nails in his stomach (not real nails but the illusion of nails). What is the history of this statue and how much is it worth?" Sadly, I haven't found the answer to this one yet.

and finally...

4.) "Do you have any of the W-D40 tax forms?"
