GotYA blogger Krista has been KIDNAPPED! The dastardly culprits? The AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION! Yes! All of them! They are, as it turns out, criminal masterminds on par with the Hamburglar.
Okay. Alright. I made all of that up.
Krista is, however, at the American Library Association's 2010 Annual Conference. Therefore, you guys are stuck with me for this week's Flashback Friday. Krista will fill you in on all the glorious ALA10 details when she gets a chance.
In honor of the ALA, this week's Flashback Friday is all about libraries. Is there a particular library you've loved more than all the others? A librarian who just plain rocked? A late fee that made you cringe?
Share your favorite library tidbits and tales in the comments.
~ My Library Story ~
Growing up on the east coast of Canada, we picked up a lot of television stations from Maine. One station frequently ran a PSA for a library (I'm guessing it was Bangor) that I loved. In it, a woman turns a corner in a library and lets out a bloodcurdling scream. The camera pans out to show poor Stephen King who then says something or other about books and libraries and how they need your support.
It's been years since I've seen that PSA and I still remember it with a grin. Stephen King supported libraries therefore libraries were even more important than I already believed. Such was the logic in my pre-teen brain.
SUPER FABULOUS UPDATE THANKS TO SUPER FABULOUS JOSIN:
Josin has mad YouTube skills. She found the PSA for me and totally made my day!
