Let’s say we make this a meme.
Spiderman uses Super Search Powers at Chardon Library! by Geauga County Public Library on Flickr.
Look who dropped by to read the newspaper! It pays off to use Super Search Powers and stay informed.
Maybe he is looking to see if J. Jonah Jameson published some of the photos he submitted.
“Do people come up to you in inappropriate places and ask for advice?
When you write about sex, people feel they have the license to talk to you about anything, anywhere. My husband, Terry, and I were in L.A. a few weeks ago hiking in Runyon Park and this car did a U-turn and screeched to a halt in front of us. A woman jumped out and said, “I’ve been listening to your podcast forever. I have a sex problem, I need your help!” I ended up talking to her for half an hour.”

I met Dan Savage while I was training for a marathon and told him that I had been listening to his Savage Lovecast on most of my runs so it was kind of like we were running together. This is how he signed my book:
Library Journal: the only Tumblr audience where Darien Library is equally as popular as Hank Green.
Appy Hour: Face Juggler
This is the ultimate app for passing the time when you’re with a friend or two. Snap a photo of two people, indicate where their faces are in the picture and then BOOM. It will switch your faces onto each others’ bodies. Here is an example using my face and fellow librarian Tyler’s face:

Every Thursday afternoon, we feature an app handpicked by our staff.
This Old Dag: Art of Waiting -
Lately, it seems like waiting for things is a lost art, like something we’ve forgotten how to do. Nobody has time to wait because everything is one click away, one link removed. It’s all at our fingertips but it seems like our fingertips have gotten spoiled, lazy, entitled.
Dag will be here July 25th and we are practicing the Art of Waiting. Reserve her book today.
Thoroughly enjoying this ad for CT Humanities that is on the back of the Winter 2012 issue of Connecticut Explored.
When we moved into our new building in 2009, we decided to migrate our community bulletin board to its own dedicated place on our website and supplement it with digital panels in our Main Street area.
Unfortunately, our community never really took to it. Turns out, our patrons want a good old fashioned cork board where they can peruse goings on about town.
When I formed our Senior Advisory Board this past winter, a community bulletin board was one of the very first things they asked about. Admittedly, I hemmed and hawed a bit just because these things are a lot of work to maintain and I was afraid it would put a lot of strain on our front line staff. But my seniors persisted. They did not let me forget. And eventually my light bulb moment came.
This is not my library. This is their library. If they want something, then by golly they shall have it! So here is our Community Bulletin Board! I am going to have a miniature ribbon-cutting ceremony for it at our next SAB meeting on June 5.
We are in a staff training learning about Zinio, a new service that lets you borrow digital magazines from the Library. Very exciting!
