The surprising things I learned at the library

The Christian Science Monitor has a Nice Short Story by Norman Prady about his time spent at the library. He was there to spend the afternoons and weekends of my high school senior year doing the pageboy's work of shelving books, "reading shelves"to maintain accurate book placement, and fetching esoteric volumes from the stacks.

Nothing has changed

It's great that Mr Prady had such a wonderful learning experience in his high school days. The sad thing is that nothing has changed in libraries since those days. In other words, libraries are pretty much stagnant. As stagnant as a typewriter.
