Library Advocates

The American Library Association's Washington Office tumblr. We post about federal policies that affect libraries, including copyright, privacy and access. We also post about ebooks and, admittedly, the occasional library fluff.

Library Advocates

Woke up this morning and decided to checkout the “Corner Library” in my neighborhood, that I heard about from my friend. Almost drove past it because I didn’t think it would be on an actual corner, but it’s positioned in front of a house that’s literally on the corner. The “library” itself is a mailbox looking house with two little handles and small latch, so keep your eye out for it if you want to check it out yourself.
Anyways, I brought a couple books to exchange since I thought it would be rude to just take books without reimbursing the shelves. I picked out some pretty good books, if I may say so myself: a thriller from Stuart MacBride (I’ve read one of previous books), a Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul book, and a writing supplementary book. Can’t wait to start reading them!
Cheers to Literacy!

Public/shared access to works of art and information: it’s a thing of beauty.
