Web 2.0 Meets My Local Library

They just opened a new public library branch in a nice new building a few blocks from my house. On the county library website they have a link to photos of the grand opening. If you check it out, it is actually a Flickr photoset. Nice to see my very most local library getting in to the swing of things. Moreover, there is YouTube video of Liz Gilland’s speech at the festivities. She’s both the chair of the County Council as well as one of our neighbors. Seeing her on YouTube gives me some of that 21st Century cognitive dissonance, but in the good way.

  1. Very nice library(!) With or without Web 2.0, libraries are islands of retreat – my best childhood memories were spending afternoons at the neighborhood library and searching for books in the hardwood shelves that stood no taller than 3 shelves (for the kids).

  2. Dorothy, I had a very similar experience growing up in rural Kansas and Nebraska. If not for the very good libraries we had (thank you, ghost of Andrew Carnegie) my young life would have been much poorer.
