The paperback versions of the Harry Potter series are getting a new look. Everybody got their pitchforks ready? Okay, and remember, it’s not a crazy ass internet mob unless somebody mentions Hitler.
The Washington Presidential Library received a $10 Million dollar donation for its planned becoming a thing (Mount Vernon is raising money to build it) despite not having a movie made about it. Suck it, Lincoln, Washington’s memorial looks like a dick.
West Virginia blows freakin goats at spending, like, all the money. Example: A one-room library only open three days a week is running a $15,000 server for internet. Correction: possibly as much as $20,000 server.
Apparently, Israeli soldiers and librarians collected Palestinian books when they took control of Jerusalem. The Israelis say “preservation,” the Palestinians say “theft,” and Quentin Tarantina says “Fuck.”
If you downloaded the Kindle update to your iPhone early on Wednesday and opened it, you might be shocked to learn your entire library was deleted. If you ask for funds to help out your library in Charleston, WV, your entire library may also be deleted with an air of indifference.
A guy lived in the St. John’s College library for six weeks. The article claims the man must be “Rambo-esque” with his stealth. Took the words right outta my mouth. SOMEONE GOT PAID TO WRITE THAT AND NOW I AM MAKING FUN OF THEM FOR FREE.
IUPUI University Library is looking to start an electronic recycling program, or IUPUIULERP, which I think is a word in the Black Tongue for “End of Daystar.” The library would partner with RecycleForce, which sounds damn awesome, to take “anything with a cord,” just like grandma.
The Bright Star Mobile Library is Pakistan’s number one bookmobile, delivering books to kids all over the land and... you know what? I’m not being snarky about this one. This is a gorgeous message of hope in a land torn apart by war. If reincarnation is real, I hope I am lucky enough to come back as a tire on the Bright Star just to say I have done even a little good in this world.
Columbus “Library wastes no time buying former deaf school” I would not change a thing about that headline. I think that sums it up. Who wants pie?
