Tamara Faith Berger: Open, honest, queasy sex

Tamara Faith Berger: Open, honest, queasy sex | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

For those of us who secretly read V.C. Andrews and The Story of O under the covers with flashlights in early adolescence, Tamara Faith Berger is our grown-up literary saint. Her prose has consistently traversed extreme, forbidden territory, infusing filth with intelligence and sophistication unseen in much of Canadian literature. Daring and candid depictions of sexuality are her legacy; first with the intensely pornographic and female-centric musings of Lie With Me, and later with The Way of the Whore, both of which cemented Berger as a perhaps unwitting standard for accurate depictions of rabid female desire.

Now THAT’S a Mobile Library!

Now THAT’S a Mobile Library! | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Smitty Miller, Community Develop Librarian for Fraser Valley Regional Library (Abbotsford, British Columbia) ”gets it.” She REALLY “gets it.” She “gets” that libraries need to be “in” the community, not just think the community is going to come “in” to the library. She “gets” that community development is about interaction and conversation. She “gets” that the library needs to be a fun, happening place, connecting with people where people are — “at food banks, shelters, senior homes, and other community hubs.” And she’s done it. WOW has she done it!

 

This is LiLi – Library Live and On Tour! A “mobile initiative’ LiLi is a 2012 Nissan Cube, designed to deliver the library to people by “shattering stereotypes and misconceptions about library services. LiLi is an adult literacy initiative “targeting folks aged 19+”, first by getting their attention, then prompting conversations, making friends and then offering services.

The Book is not dead, it’s just changing context. For The Book to be dead, we would have to no longer care about stories or understanding complex ideas that take more than 140 characters to convey. Books are more alive more than ever before.

Cheapskates love libraries (it's mutual)

Cheapskates love libraries (it's mutual) | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Libraries aren't just the mark of a civilized society -- assembling, curating and disseminating knowledge to all comers! -- they're also a cheapskate's best friend. Anyone who's interested in saving money probably already knows about the free Internet access, daily newspapers, DVD and audiobook borrowing, and book lending (duh). But local libraries go beyond that -- many host community meetings, book readings for kids, author signings, and workshops, as well as providing free or low-cost meeting spaces.
