It’s Friday! And it didn’t slip by on me this week. Since it’s always kind of dark here in the Library, the days have a tendency to blur together – I know, I know, get out more, stop getting lost in all the books. But, but, the to-be-read pile, so hulking, so threatening to crush me… Anyway, speaking of Friday and books, it’s also that day of the week where folks on social media (okay, Twitter mostly) [READ MORE]

October 6, 2016 The Librarian 0

You’ll notice that the tagline of our site does not say “horror fiction.” That’s because here at the Library have an appreciation for non-fiction as well. Hell, we even like poetry.
