"The future is now! Soon every American home will integrate their television, phone and computer. You’ll be able to visit the Louvre on one channel, or watch female wrestling on another. You can do your shopping at home, or play Mortal Kombat with a friend from Vietnam. There’s no end to the possibilities!" —chip douglas.

"Stakeholders are backpedaling on previous estimates and are now saying that the backlash against ‘literally’ will occur before the end of 2014. We’ll need all hands on deck once everything becomes ‘figuratively the best’ and people ‘figuratively can’t even.’"

liblinks:

We’ve got our Banned Books Week display up a little early this week. This is a picture of the one in the Main Library and there are also displays going up in the Science Library and The Curriculum Materials Library in Aderhold. 

As you can see in the second picture, each book has a brief description of its plot/content, its publication date, and whether it’s fiction or non-fiction. The tag also tells you where, when, and why it was banned or challenged. We’ve included books banned around the world, historically and presently.

The CML in Aderhold will have an extra display consisting specifically of children’s books that have been banned or challenged. 

So stop by and pick up a book someone, somewhere thought you shouldn’t be allowed to read. 

I love the idea. And Banned Books Week starts Sunday.
