Friday Foolery #80: Duct taped library carpet showdown

After last week’s debut of our duct-taped carpet, Janna was kind enough to share and give the ok for her fashionably festive duct-taped 37 year old mustard yellow library carpet to be featured here. Check out this spring palette closeup!

The worst of ours is so bad it warrants its own caution tape though. See how there’s another one of these in the distance too?

I did see someone from repair looking at the carpet and proclaiming that it is ‘Just awful!’ but nothing has been done to fix it yet. We shall see.

    sounds to me like it’s time for some impromptu library hopscotch !

    well…if duct tape is good for warts maybe it can do wonders for your carpet! 😛

    Molly I see original (not trendy online) foursquare and live librarian bingo opportunities too. Sadly we don’t do them since this is a public area, unlike last week’s.

    I dunno Brandi. I’ve been around here almost 3 years including my internship and all the duct tape hasn’t healed the carpet yet 😉

    I never thought a library’s carpet would remind me of my grade school playground days. It is perfect for hopscotch and foursquare. Depending on your ceiling height you could have a wicked game of wall ball going on while people waited for somebody to get out in foresquare.
