Getting out a bit

The leaves are changing here. Beautiful.

I am at the library bringing back interlibrary loans. Very useful service. Books come from libraries all over the region. Invaluable for research.

    In the spring you appeared to be about two weeks behind us. Now you appear to be two weeks ahead.
    I didn’t even see you come by.

    Speaking as a professional librarian, I’m pleased to see you making use of your local library.

    Libraries are one of the best “freebies” in America, don’t you think?

    PS I read The Name of the Rose two years ago but still haven’t read a good translation of the following that relates the literary meaning in the novel:

    “stat rosa pristina nomine, nomina nuda tenemus”

    No Wiki cheating, anyone!

    I’ll contact “Cathy of Alex”, she’ll know, being a professional librarian.

    I don’t like libraries because I don’t like having to give the books back.

    I wish libraries would look like they used to.
    The modern library look – extreme utilitarian decorated with construction paper cutouts – really turns me off.

    I hear ya on those interlibrary loans. At GSU we can get books from all over the world. It is going to come in handy when I start writing my thesis.

    Libraries are at their best when they have a coffee shop attached as my local (Sydney suburb) library does.

    Father, as a professional librarian, my heart is warmed by your public praise of your library!

    It looks like you have a few librarians among your readers/commentors. You see, we appreciate you, too! :)
