Like pretty much everyone, I like to laugh and have a good time. I don't have cable or a DVR, so I often miss my favorite television comedies. Luckily, the library has a wide selection of books that are able to tickle my funny bone. Books are much easier to fit in my schedule as well. If you're looking for a good laugh, here are a few of my favorites....all available at the Arlington Public Library!
