Things I've Discovered While Working at the Library, Part 1: How to Go to College in My Car
One of the great things about working at a library is that I come across all sorts of things in our collection, things that I'd never known were out there. I'll be sharing some of my finds with you here in this and future blog posts.
It was an intervention - my husband came home yet, again with another DVD purchased at a local store. His habit was getting so bad that he could no longer remember which DVDs he had purchased, and he was becoming a repeat offender. "Stop!" I yelled, "I can get recently released DVD's from the library and it's free!" At first he did not believe me, but now each day when I arrive home, he asks if there are any DVDs in my book bag.
If you are a Facebook user and a movie fan, the movie The Social Network may be for you. The film features an ensemble cast, and is a drama about the founding of the internet social networking website Facebook.
Happy Birthday Sesame Street! Sesame Street premiered on November 10, 1969. It is one of the longest running children's programs on television, as well as being the longest running series broadcasted on PBS. Children, for the last 40 years, have been learning with the Sesame Street Muppets. Which Sesame Street muppet is your favorite? Ernie, Bert, Grover, Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Elmo, or Mr. Snuffleupagus? I myself have always been rather fond of Cookie Monster, and his catchy tune, "C is for Cookie."
Sometimes working in a library, I feel a little out of place. You may ask why? I like watching TV, and almost every day a customer will comment that there is nothing on TV. So, they come to the library to stock up on books. I think people feel that because I’m working at the library, I agree with this statement.
The library is a fabulous resource for movies in a variety of genres: drama, comedy, adventure, science fiction, mystery, and musicals. Although musicals aren't as popular as they once were, they are still a delightful form of entertainment. Musicals lift your spirits and evoke pleasant memories.
