I Like Libraries

I just a got a hold cancellation notice from the SF Public Library. Oops. May bad. I forgot to pick up ChiRunning. Now I'll have to wait for my turn to come around again...that part sucks. There are a few other inconveniences:
  • The whole catalog isn't virtual*
  • You have to go to them (which, in the case of SF Public, means a BART ride)
  • Some are overwhelming to just stand in, they have so much stuff!
Now, some of the good things:
  • They have so.much.stuff!
  • Free movie rentals!
  • Language lessons!
  • They price, my friends, is right.**
  • It's easy to find older volumes on subjects...which is a major benefit over bookstores, both physical and online
  • People watching
  • Quiet
I've been to a few of the libraries around here and can tell you that I like most all of them. They are a public service that is at a crossroads (a few years into it, actually) - people use them less, so their funding is always scrutinized. So, how do we fix this? Start by using them more...it's those numbers that are the biggest keys to them getting the "big bucks". Sure Friends of the Library book purchases are good, as are donations if you can afford them, moneybags. I'm going to start working on my family to just GO.

We're Heading Back to LJ!

 marm0t has inspired me!

It's not a lock, stock and barrel situation...just a move to longer (read: more thoughtful) posts than I'm naturally inclined to use Facebook for. It came up a couple of months ago when I posted a "Note" about the World Cup and kwigz commented that he'd like to see more posts like that.

Oh, and don't think I didn't notice your activity, isidorenabi ! You and your Twitter-length posts.

The cross-posting/hyping on FB and Twitter should be expected.
