Royal Romances

Royal Wedding of Prince William & Kate Middleton - from The Daily MailCan you believe it's been a year already?  Yesterday marked the first anniversary of Britain's Prince William and his bride Kate (now known as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus).  America may not have celebrated with a bank holiday (though you're welcome to pretend, since our banks were closed on Sunday anyway), but I'm certain there were plenty of royal-watching Americans who raised a glass in their honor yesterday.

"The world of libraries is changing, and we have to change with it." Anthony W. Marx, President of the New York Public Library

Remember when in order to do a paper for school, you had to come into the library for the information?  Remember running in before the library closed on Sunday night (yes, we used to be open until 8:00 on Sundays during the school year) and feverishly photocopying from the reference books?  As a librarian for many years, I helped many a panic-stricken student who was desperately trying to piece together enough information to complete the assignment while the angry parent hissed "I told you not to wait until the last minute..." Well, they did and we helped them the best we could.
