Today's strip is our four thousandth, give or take. As I explained almost four years ago on the occasion of strip number 3000, counting is hard. A lot has happened at the Mallville Public Library since then. The budget crisis was resolved with Colleen's resignation, only to have the library hire Dyna shortly thereafter. Then Dewey got married and had a baby, more or less in that order. If catching up by paging through a thousand strips on our website sounds like a lot of work, pick up our specially-priced three-book bundle!
