Miscellaneous Library Links

Here a couple brief but interesting items related to libraries that I've come across recently:

-Ms. Iyna Bort Caruso makes a startling admission in the Christian Science Monitor:

It's Saturday morning, and I'm standing under a thick, damp sky waiting for the doors to open. If only it was something as practical as, say, a Macy's shoe sale. But here I am, alone, waiting for the doors to open – to the library.

Librarius nerdus. I am a library nerd.

-While I was looking for news about Real Salt Lake's success in getting a soccer stadium approved, I came across this item in the Salt Lake Tribune:

Salt Lake City's Main Library has been ranked as one of the nation's favorite buildings.

In a poll commissioned by the American Institute of Architects, the library was ranked 69th out of 150.

"This is wonderful," Library Director Nancy Tessman said Thursday.

The "library junkie" story was a nice little report. Thanks for the pointer. I haven't worn out my library card, but I am working on it. Best, and keep on blogging.
