Alan Taylor of The Atlantic has posted a photo appreciation of libraries. They are both beautiful and breathtaking. I would just love to escape my life and spend a day in one of those awe-inspiring spaces. Enjoy!
If you are in the process of writing down your New Year’s resolutions today and they include travel, you might want to include visiting some of the world’s greatest libraries.
The week of March 7th, 2011 is Library Ireland Week. The celebration is an initiative of the Library Association of Ireland. Library Ireland Week 2011 is a week when libraries show how smart they really are and that Smart People Use Smart Libraries. Check out the video promoting Ireland’s libraries!
Today a good article was posted at the Website “one minion’s opinion” on book vandalism: http://1minionsopinion.wordpress.com/2009/10/28/book-vandalism-is-still-vandalism/.
Enjoy the article. Let me know what you think….
Beauregard the Library Cat is the newest member of the H. B. Stamps Library Staff. The H. B. Stamps Library is located in Hawkins County, TN.
The Hawkins County Library Website reports that Beauregard has been very helpful in making sure the chairs are being used. He likes to be around people and does not mind occasional petting. The librarians only ask that you not pick him up (mostly for his safety).
Let’s hope that other libraries follow this example and adopt a homeless cat!
