NICK EICHER, HOST: Librarians near Grand Rapids, Michigan, are trying to put a stop to a recent rash of book burnings.
The Kent District Library posted a Facebook message to help educate patrons, who are accidentally setting the books on fire!
Yeah, here’s the message:
Please, stop microwaving library books!
Seriously. Some readers thought that by microwaving, they could kill any coronavirus that might be lingering in the pages of community-used books.
Librarians quarantine returned items for 72 hours—they’re perfectly safe.
Oh, one other thing:
The RF tags the library puts in everything it lends out, well, radio frequency tags have metal in them. You do know what happens when you put metal in the microwave.
Yes, starts fires.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
