Orson Scott Cart, meet Louisa May Alcart: Here are the Top Twenty Nicknames librarians have given to book carts.
If you work in a library, you work with book carts, so naturally you give them nicknames. You could call your faithful book cart Bumpy, Squeaky, Rusty or Tipsy. But surely you can do better than that! Here’s a list of actual nicknames librarians have bestowed upon their favorite book carts:
Louisa May Alcart
Orson Scott Cart
Wheels DeGrasse Tyson
Total Eclipse Of The Cart
If you happen to be a librarian and these names inspire you to re-name the book cart in your life, please share the results in the comments section.
