Since it's Friday and I don't feel like writing much, I'll just point to a very amusing blog post entitled "Libraries Need to Be Cool." I wish I could write such a great parody of the hyperactive, "customer-friendly" librarian trying desperately to be "cool" and WOW people. Very funny. I love the line about how libraries should be the "funniest, coolest places in town and on the Net." She really says it like she means it, too. Writing that kind of absurdity with a straight face (metaphorically speaking) is the mark of good satire. If there were more funny stuff like this in the bibliotek blogosphere, I might have to retire.
