BCD Banville

The Infinities by John Banville. Read by Julian Rhind-Tutt. 8 discs. 9+ hours.

"The Booker Prize winner retains his standing as one of the world's most exquisite stylists in this sublimely acerbic and mischievous tale about the timeless mysteries of love and death. Old Adam Godley, a theoretical mathematician famous for his world-altering discoveries about the infinities, appears to be dying in the Sky Room atop his rambling manor, yet he is preternaturally attuned to the skirmishes erupting below….intricate musings over the complexities of consciousness and the cosmos, Banville creates a bewitching world in which to ponder what it is to be human."

Playing and Planning with Words

The New City Library is beginning the process of writing a five- year plan of service.   One important element is to look at the Library’s Mission and Vision Statements.   The Library’s current mission statement is five paragraphs long and contrary to current business practice of having something concise and easily known. In working with the staff of the New City Library, the new mission statement being proposed is:   ”The mission of the New City Library is to inspire ideas, enrich lives and create community”.   I would like to hear from you on this matter and would be interested in your opinion.
