A library …
A short compilation by Helene Blowers | HeleneBlowers.com
A library has been
described as many things
by many people …
"In a library we are surrounded by many
         hundreds of dear friends
imprisoned by an enchanter in paper and
                          leathern boxes."
                             Ralph Waldo Emerson




                           http://www.flickr.com/photos/bootbearwdc/13647107/
"A library is not simply a
     repository of books, it is the
symbol and center of our culture
 - a door and a window for
      those who might not
      otherwise have such
      doors and windows."
                             Amy Tan

"The library is a societal tent pole,
There are a lot of ideas under it.
Knock out the pole and the tent comes
down“
                           Michael Connelly
                                 Author   .
"Libraries are raucous
clubhouses for free speech,
 controversy, and community."
                  Paula Poundstone
                         Comedian

But perhaps one of my favorite thoughts on
libraries comes from the Father of Modern
Librarianship himself …

(be sure to pay special attention to his caveat)
A library's function is to give the
public in the quickest and
cheapest way information,
inspiration, and recreation. If a
better way than the book can
be found, we should use it."
            - Melvil Dewey (1851-1931)

A library …
So what are your thoughts?
"What matters here is technical capital, it's social capital. These
                   tools don't get socially interesting until they get
                   technologically boring. It isn't when the shiny new tools
                   show up that their uses start permeating; it's when everyone is able to
                   take them for granted.“
                                                                       - Clay Shirky, Ted Talk 6/09

"Too much light often blinds gentlemen
                                                  of this sort. They cannot see the forest
                                                  for the trees."
                                                                     - Musarion [1768], Canto II

“As many newspapers struggle to stay

                                        Americans (43%) say that losing their
                                        local newspaper would hurt civic life in
                                        their community "a lot."

been difficult or impossible to find
previously.

  4. http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2009/03/02/un-telecommunications.html http://www.tgdaily.com/html_tmp/content-view-41586-113.html Two thirds of the world’s cell phone subscriptions are in developing nations, with the highest growth rate in Africa where a quarter of the population now has a mobile, a United Nations agency said on Friday. While just 1 in 50 Africans had a mobile in the year 2000, now 28 percent have a cellular subscription, according to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The world has more than three times more mobile cellular subscriptions than fixed telephone lines, and in some countries in Asia and Europe people have more than one contract each, pushing the mobile access rate above 100 percent.

  10. he handprint to the right is a cave painting drawn 32,000 years ago and is the oldest portrait of man. On the walls of Chauvet Cave in southern France, the artist used the technology of his day, tinted charcoal dust blown through a straw, to create a simple, yet powerful icon of human-ness. This image captures the essence of human-centered computing. Much like the Paleolithic beings, we still use technology to relate to, understand and depict the world around us, still trying to say "I am here. I am human."
