  • Library services for homebound readers

    One of the most treasured memories I have of my grandparents is when my grandfather would read the Sunday paper to my grandmother. He had been reading the paper to her for over ten years, ever since she developed macular degeneration, eventually rendering her completely blind. She also listened to books-on-tape sent to her by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, a program managed by The Library of Congress. I can still remember the large, archaic tape recorder meant for listening to the tapes.

  • Getting cozy with a Chromebook

    Call me Sisyphus. You might remember him from your elementary school literature unit on Greek myths. He's the guy who is tasked with rolling an enormous ball up a hill only to watch it roll back down, leaving him to start all over again from square one. For eternity!

  • Windows

    If you happened to look up into the second floor windows of the Library on a recent Friday evening, you'd have seen figures moving in dim light. You might have seen the figures dancing. You might have seen them hugging. You wouldn't have seen the tears. Or the boots kicked off on the floor and the heels shed. Inside, library staff bid their fond farewells to our departing Executive Director, Leslie Burger.

  • Reflections of a Bowie Kid

    When I awoke to a New York Times push notification that David Bowie had died, I just couldn't swipe through to read the story. Similarly, I'm struggling to find the words here to describe his enormous influence on my life. See, I was 14 in 1972, the release year of "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars," arguably one of the most influential pop albums of all time.
