On the supremacy of libraries

I had a longish talk the other night with one of our (High School) student workers here at the library. I can go years without getting to know student workers, but the point at which we become friendly invariably marks their imminent departure. I have mused on this curious scenario in the past, but my current feeling is that the point at which they're developmentally ready to engage with me is also the point at which they are mature enough to realize they are destined for greater things.

"Greater things than the library?" You ask.

Well you know youth, so unrealistic.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
