Sounds like a good discussion, but if they're doing on air promos I hope
they're pronouncing "Library" correctly. Last week every time Day to Day
promoted NPR librarian Kee Malesky's spot on Turin vs Torino the
announcer called her a "libarian". I was screaming at my radio every
time I heard it. It's worse than fingernails on a chalkboard as far as
I'm concerned.

Tomorrow (Tuesday, 2/21/06), the NPR show Talk of the Nation will
the "Bookless Library." The blurb states:

"Information technology changes as soon we think we understand it. We
at how libraries keep up and redefine their role. How would you design a
library for the 21st century?"

TOTN has a phone-in component, so you may want to tune in....(snip)

I don't know if any librarians were involved in the production of this
show... it will be interesting to listen!
