Read what you want.

As librarians, we will never judge you.  We would never judge you.  We sideeye those who do.

In response to THAT article, and in solidarity with the sentiments over here (at the New Republic) and over here (with NSFW language, a bit, at Jezebel).

I don’t give a shit what you read!  Erotica?  I’ll get it for you.  Obscure manga?  OCLC to the rescue.  That one book with the blue cover and the thingy?  I will go down a black research hole for you and then I will put a hold on it.

LIBRARIANS HAVE NO SHAME.  WE DON’T CARE.

We don’t have actual donuts in the collection so we offer up this spinning 3D donut gif. An intern in our 3D Digitization Program scanned a donut a few years ago as a way to practice with the new technology. And our resident gif artist at smithsonianlibraries turned it into a mesmerizing gif just for you. 
You can follow Smithsonian X 3D on Twitter and Facebook and explore, download and print 3D models of dozens of our artifacts at 3d.si.edu 

The Smithsonian Libraries is pretty much limited to 2D scanning. But the folks at Smithsonian X 3D get to scan in three dimensions!
