Believe it or Not! Strange Library Interview Questions

So I decided to collect some strange Library Interview Questions. All these questions are true and have been asked on interviews. Thanks to everyone on Twitter who submitted their questions....especially to those who were scared this would make it back to their bosses. I hope you get a kick out of these or maybe some inspiration for your next round of interviews.

Make a flow chart of how to make a PB&J sandwich.

How would you decorate the teen department with no budget?

How are you with hamsters?

Do you have a library card?

What would do if the toilet overflowed in the library?

How would you use this in a program? (After being handed a flip camera)

Alabama or Auburn?  (It's a football thing...)

Have you ever been in a parade?

Do you like cats?

Why is a manhole cover round?

How does it feel to have worked for the library with the worst customer service

If money and time were no object what would you do?

What would you do if someone threw up?

What household appliance would you be?

How many ping pong balls do you think will fit in a 747? And how would you get them into a plane? Inside the passenger and cargo hold areas?

What creative things do you do?

If you were a magazine, which title would you be?

Would you mind hugging the patrons?

The manhole cover one is a Microsoft interview question. (I mean, not anymore, because most software engineers probably know the answer, by now.) :)
