I Heart Libraries


March 12, 2011 by Sarah D.

I’m happy to have a short piece, “Love Letter to the Mercantile,” in this month’s issue of Talking Writing.  Check it out—and while you’re there, take a look at some of the other excellent work featured in this issue that explores the provocative topic, Is Print Dead? Yet?

One day, libraries may become a relic of our pasts.  I can still recall a movie we watched during “Library Period” in elementary school.  (Yes, an entire period dedicated to the library!)  The movie was called Tomes and Talismans, a post-apocalyptic series about aliens taking over Earth.  A librarian, Ms. Bookhart, somehow rescues planet Earth, saves all record of human knowledge found in a hidden, underground library, and, at the same time, instructs some children on the proper way to use the Dewey Decimal System. AWESOME!

Here’s a clip:

Really, it doesn’t get much better than that.
