Libraries to rival Cupcakes?

I encourage you to read a recent blog post the NPR blog, Monkey See titled "Why The Next Big Pop-Culture Wave After Cupcakes Might Be Libraries". This is making it's way around the blogosphere, but thought I would point you in that direction in case you missed it.

Call it a hunch, but it seems to me that the thing is in the air that happens right before something — families with a million kids, cupcakes, wedding coordinators — suddenly becomes the thing everyone wants to do happy-fuzzy pop-culture stories about. Why?

-Libraries get in fights
-Librarians know stuff
-Libraries are green and local
-Libraries will give you things for free...

Go read the whole post and spread the word. I think that Linda Holmes is on to something...
