Monday Library Day, belated, 9/14/10

I went to the library yesterday, and came home with nothing for me.

I have recently heard a rumor that my local library has only enough money in its new book budget to buy the New York Times bestsellers, and nothing more. I suppose that might not be a horrible thing - surely some of the books which make it to the top ten of the list are worth reading - but it's a sad statement on the state of libraries, and the short sighted process which passes as budgetary planning in this state.


  1. Time to start hitting them with weekly ILL requests, then.

  2. Oh, I do that anyway - the tri-county network is pretty extensive even without ordering stuff from other networks.
