Stephen Pastis’ wildly popular Timmy Failure series features one of our favorite pop culture librarians, Flo.
From Timmy Failure:
That’s an unhappy Flo. And Flo isn’t short for Florence. It’s short for “Misshelve my books and the blood may FLOw.” So people do not misshelve books at my library. They do not tear pages out of magazines.”
Flo has attitude, but at the end of the day, he shows up and supports Timmy Failure when he needs him. And, along with Timmy Failure himself, Flo makes us giggle.
Katy and Jan both appreciate the absurdity of Timmy Failure and Pastis’ transgressive take on the traditional image of the librarian.
