Breaking Library News, a Century Ago

Scowl-Face has put together a dandy historical snapshot of library news from October, 1911 through January, 1912, as part of my Library's 100th anniversary celebration this year.  Want to read it?  You're brave souls indeed.  You know where to click.

Be sure to put a pillow near where your head will fall when you nod off.  This is Scowl-Face's writing we're talking about, remember.  There's no better insomniac aid on the market.

P.S.  Last time we talked about our 100th anniversary celebration, I closed with a fan's video interpretation of "I Never Thought I'd Live To Be a Hundred," by the Moody Blues, which appeared on the album To Our Children's Children's Children (1969).  This time, the video above shows the band members  against the soundtrack of the song and its reprise, "I Never Thought I'd Live to Be a Million," which also appeared on the same album.  The photos appear to be mostly from the late 1960s/early 1970s, at least during the first video segment; during the second segment, the photos are much more recent (last decade or so?), because the group is, frankly, much older, too.  Ask the Lady With the Red Hair sometime about her experience seeing the Moody Blues live in concert at Purdue University back in the 1980s.  Trust moi, it's worth it.
