Maybe if I save enough damaged books I can finally make a standing desk for check-outs!

Albany Library (Albany, Western Australia) have a terrific 'bibliograffe' - a 'giraffe' made entirely out of old books!
Mary Clark's comment, November 19, 2012 4:56 PM
Sharyn, a bibliograffe is way beyond my skills, but it sounds wonderful!
Sharyn Anderson's comment, November 19, 2012 10:27 PM
The 'graffe' is life-size (more or less) with a frame for legs, body, head made from stainlees steel rods - presumably second-hand; the books have a hole bored through them from front cover to back and then the books are 'threaded' along the rods. Not as complicated as it may sound, but very, very effective - instantly recognizable.

The typewriter makes me laugh since I still instruct students to hit "return" and they don't know what that means.

Why Libraries Need To Stay Open

Why Libraries Need To Stay Open | Life of a LIBRARIAN | Scoop.it
A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination.

Are Librarians Still Important?

Are Librarians Still Important? | Life of a LIBRARIAN | Scoop.it

In a word, yes. In fact, they may be an administrator's most underutilized resource. Learn how schools are freeing them up to help students, faculty, and principals find the information they need.

 

The savviest districts and librarians are remaking the position, breaking media specialists out of the library and bringing them into the classroom to help with projects and research-basically, the same skills that used to be cultivated in the quiet of the library.

In fact, Cushing's library remains the most used space on campus, as students and faculty gather to learn together.
