Ernest Hemingway’s childhood scrapbooks now available online for the first time. Very cool stuff. Just look at that baby. You can see that … and more!
I love it how more and more historical documents are being made accessible to the public via the internets.

Around Valentine’s Day, my local library held an event in conjunction with one of the middle schools where the students got to speed date with books.

Boy do I wish they did this when I was in middle school. At least then I would have had at least one date. [sad trombone].
