NYPL staff has dug through the archives to find thoughtful and often witty answers to over 100 of the oddest, funniest, and most whimsical questions the Library has received since it began record-keeping over 75 years ago. One of The New Yorker’s best-known and beloved illustrators, Barry Blitt, has created watercolors that bring many of the questions hilariously to life.

Of course, some of the questions have left the librarians scratching their heads…

“In what occupations may one be barefooted?”
“What time does a bluebird sing?”
“What does it mean when you’re being chased by an elephant?”
“What kind of apple did Eve eat?”
“How many neurotic people are there in the U.S.?”
