Photo 20 Apr 8 notes My best score from Record Store Day was this 7” David Bowie picture disk with the Diamond Dogs-era single “1984” (there’s a live cut on the B side).

Because I believe music is for listening and not collecting, we made Bowie spin for us as soon as we got the wrapping off.

Quote 15 Apr 103 notes
Why do some libraries insist on developing website content that is not being used? There’s no doubt it would be great if library users came to our sites to read book reviews, listen to podcasts, and calculate the value that the library delivers to them. We want to be a valuable resource. We want people to trust our opinions and rely on us for guidance. But just because this would be wonderful doesn’t mean it is going to happen.
