Library

Postby LoveSickJerk » Tue Aug 24, 2004 5:16 am

I went to return a dvd at my local library and thought I'd humor myself and look through the music selction to see if there were any current cool releases. In the past there has been absolutely nothing but the MOST popular crap. As such I was in the "L" section and right behind the umpteenth Living Color cd was WIPTF! The Long Winters' second CD is availible for borrowing at the Audubon Library! Woo hoo!

Because I can't imagine it even. My library only carries classical, and a poor collection at that. And half the cds are scratched and/or missing.

They have tons of pop hits! They even have Wilco! No really! You have to beleive me! I speak only the truth! I was as flabbergasted as you however, when I saw it.

i totally believe LSJ. i too have seen copies of L-Dub discs at the local library...actually, only at the tacoma public library...i've not been to the seattle public library. but yeah, one can check out both WIPTF and TWYCDIH. and not only those, but "yoshimi..." and almost every death cab disc and ...and you will know us by the trail of dead and beulah and the shins and so on. you get the idea. i'm sorry to hear that your library does not know of the indie rock like mine does, betty. :-/

Wow. I'm still a little skeptical, but secretly impressed. Kiss your librarian!

You know, I find this phenomenon really remarkable. I had no idea the library could be used for musical education like that. It makes me like libraries even more. What potential!

I should be jealous, but I just can't criticize my library. Every library must have it's leanings...strengths and weaknesses. My library is not up on the music. But the poetry section is amazing.

And besides, my librarians are awesome. Have you ever met a librarian who wasn't an amazing or brilliant person in some way? And I've heard that as a segment of the population they are also one of the most civily active. And also, if you are nice to them, they sometimes show you the special collections.

Wouldn't it be fun to be trained as an information steward? Especially now since information is so manipulated and conflicting. It would be empowering know how to find the truth and keep the information available to the public. I don't know if I could handle the whole hair-bun-spinster stereotype though...

I've been seriously considering it for a couple of years. I think I may have to look into it.

oh, this was one of my childhood dream jobs, and I figured I would be extremely suited for the job as I was at the library 3 or 4 times a week and knew all the books
I even stuck those sheets of paper for date-stamping (this was clearly before the barcode days) in my own books, and made my family come and borrow my books

hell, I'm a secretary now and get to use a date-stamp every day, yay!

I have a 5 year old cousin just like that! Maybe she'll grow up to be a Liesbeth! Yay!
