It really warms my heart to see the library looking out for its community in the light of everything happening in Ferguson.
EDIT: Be sure to follow Ferguson Library on twitter.

This is fantastic!
If you’re looking for a way to do something for the people and community of Ferguson, perhaps write a check to their library.
The address is to the library, this information is from their director, and they don’t have a way to accept anything other than a check at the moment.
First day of 2nd grade.
The last day of summer — 2nd grade and preschool (first day ever!) both start tomorrow. So we went to the Dolores Park Playground and got soft-serve ice cream.
Thanks for the awesome poster Levi! We hope that all of you NW #tumblarians can make it to our fundraiser.
What is happening in Ferguson, Missouri is overwhelming to contemplate. This is the terrifying result of 300 years of institutionalized, systemic racism and the absurd and unnecessary militarization of the American police force.
The courage of the people of Ferguson in the face of tangible oppression and tyranny is incredible. I don’t know what else to say.
Librarians at The Interval | Information Amateurs Social Club
Librarians and archivists of the Bay Area: come join a tour and happy hour at The Interval, the new Fort Mason space designed by the Long Now Foundation.
What is The Interval?
It is a library whose collection is “The Manual for Civilization,” containing all the works humanity would need to begin again.
It is a cocktail bar, with unique libations reinterpreted from the past.
As with all Info Amateurs events, it is open to anyone who considers themselves a librarian, an archivist, or is a library school student — or anyone who happens to like libraries or archives. Strangers welcome.
