I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
some have problems with the concept of 'freedom of choice' - especially those that really want to control your choices! Not that libraries can provide everything available... but PTV & public libraries do suffer from an appalling lack of funding - especially since the golden age (for ptv at least) of the 70s.
Yes - kindered spirits indeed. PBS has that same warm fuzzy feeling that libraries seem to have. Which is very cool...
I have always appreciated the parallels btwn public television/radio & libraries. It has this intrinsic positive value associated with it that helps all these venues continue into the future (well that's my hope anyway!).
Buenos diás, Scott!
Thank you for adding me to your friends list. I'm enjoying reading about your implementation of 2.0, Twitter, etc. as I know Casa Grande is growing in population, right now.
(I still remember summers on the border and swamp coolers which have disappeared in the era of refrigerated air conditioning units!)
Hello- Regarding your IM question, we are using Gaim at the library, but I personally prefer and use Meebo. We/I have accounts in Yahoo, Google, AIM, Jabber and MSN. I'm not sure if I am answering your question correctly. If not, feel free to meebo me using the widget on my page when I'm online sometime.
Ya Ochoas is still here! It's till the restaurant people ask for when they stop into town. Do you remember Joddy McCuen? I love the heat too. It does two things for me, it clears out the town a bit, so its not as crowded, and I just prefer it hot. I am from California originally, so anything that reduces the crowd a bit is great for me.
Yeah I remember taking Fortran at CAC (punchcards) and looking up books on their primitive OPAC. I really enjoy the heat and the Gila River desert country is mighty fine. Nothing better than a feast at Ochoas too! My spouse, a Virginia native, is not as excited about the heat and scenery as I am!
Very cool, its a small world. Of course, I am from Southern California originally, but my wife is a native. She is one of the few here that are :) Make sure you visit when its not 110 degrees :) One of the librarians that work here is from Coolidge, but she was probably born in 1979. (Sorry, wasn't trying to make you feel old )
Very cool, thanks for the add too.
Saw your pictures on the L2.0 site. Greetings. I'm a 1979 graduate of Coolidge High School. I went to CAC/Signal Peak for one year following HS prior to moving to Florida, NM, Colorado, AZ and now NJ. I love AZ dearly and get back every chance I get. http://www.hodip.com/kurt -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/kurtwagner
