Libraries are a beacon....very aptly said! How wonderful a NEW library has actually been built and stocked in your neighborhood.

Oh yes, I loved those old card catalogs too, but like you have discovered the convenience of electronic information. But I miss those wood cabinets with their rows and rows of little, neatly labeled drawers.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment.


Sara — I made myself a copy of the Rosetti poem so I don't forget it and to remind me to be sure and tune in to the King's College live Christmas broadcast on the radio.

I looked at a number of your posts because we are of a similar age and are both hat lovers!

And thank you for stopping by as well.

And don't forget that you have access to one of the largest collections in the country - the UW-Madison libraries.

As a gardener, you may be interested to know that you can check books out at Steenbock agricultural & life sciences library for FREE! You can also check out books from Ebling health sciences library and the Water library for FREE.

For $30/year, you can check books out from all the rest of the 40 libraries on campus.


Amanda — thanks for the reminder about UW libraries. I've used many of them over the years (inc, Steenbock); but these days I tend to have my husband get books for me as he is a UW employee. I did mention Steenbock and the UW libraries when I wrote about Persephone Books last winter since a number of the titles are in campus libraries.

What I really need to do is just get myself a card and go to the libraries in person again — I loved Steenbock when I was in grad school. Thanks for stopping by.
