Have you ever walked into a library (or bookstore, for that matter) looking for a book...and completely forgotten everything about it, except the color of the cover?
If you have, you're not alone. Like, not even close. In fact, it's so common at Framingham Public Library in Massachusetts that its staff recently put together this hilariously genius display for all its forgetful patrons.
Leib told BuzzFeed that patrons ask for books by cover color "pretty frequently, at least a couple of times a week."
It turns out, the idea behind the display is pretty relatable among librarians. The Framingham library puts them up frequently, Leib said, and several people replied to Leib's tweet, saying their branches do the same thing.
They also shared their personal triumphs in locating a book based on the cover color.
The stories are incredibly impressive, TBH.
Leib said that the requests are exciting, not annoying. "I want to stress that we're happy to help patrons find the book they want, with however much information they can provide."
So don't feel bad the next time you're feeling more than a little forgetful!
