Gigi ends her public service

Just 3 days short of turning 13 months old (or 383 years old in people years), Gigi the stapler must finally give up her unprecedented tenure as a public servant in our library. She exploded some parts last night, hitting an unsuspecting bystander, and now her casing has come separated from her guts.


She will be sent to a quiet shelf to retire in peace and think back over her incredibly long career. We wish her well in her retirement.
