Friday Fun of Thursday: Despite Budget Cuts, Public Libraries Still Rock
Here's a recent flashmob dance, involving people of all ages from the Greater Columbus Arts Council's out-of-school-time program, Art in the House, partner program TRANSIT ARTS, adults and seniors! It all happened at the Columbus Metropolitan Library and in the face of substantial budget cutbacks to public libraries in Ohio (and elsewhere) hopefully it reminds us all that public libraries are cultural institutions that are hell-bent of remaining vital to their local commuities.

"hopefully it reminds us all that public libraries are cultural institutions that are hell-bent of remaining vital to their local commuities" [sic].
No, what it reminds us is that in American "culture", with its worship of vulgarity, there truly is no bottom, and public libraries, being desperate to survive, both reflect and exploit that fact.
