At the Libraries: Library Memes

Each week Miss Kathleen provides links to a variety of stories about libraries, authors, and books. If there’s something noteworthy going on in your local library, leave us a comment!

Happy Hunger Games Week! Are you going to see it? Hope you already have tickets — advanced sales are record-setting!
Bye-bye Britannica! Will you miss it?
Remember when we learned about the Espresso self-publishing machine? Well, guess which oh-so-hip borough’s public library has its very own? Brooklyn, you’ve done it again!
Everyone loves a good meme, librarians included! See a nice collection here.

The best reason yet to get an e-reader: so no one can see the naughty things you are reading! I love this new term, “romantica”!
Oh dear, what is happening in Toronto, guys? The librarians are on strike!
I hope you guys are ready for some more crazy bookshelves — the ideas never stop! At left, Exhibit A, leaning shelves; at right, Exhibit B, spiral shelves.

A fortunate son honors his mother and helps his Massachusetts hometown library in the process. Who says Bloomberg is cold-hearted?
My birthday isn’t for months, but hey, bookmark this site if you are looking for gifts for the book lover in your life. You won’t be sorry!
Thanks for reading, and let me know if you plan to see The Hunger Games this weekend (and if you liked it!). And as always, let me know about the great library stuff you come across. See you guys next week!
