As previously mentioned, it's National Library Week, hooray! Libraries are celebrating in all kinds of ways - from customized READ posters in Austin to Wii bowling for senior citizens in northern Kentucky - and the Library of Congress has a revamped website with new interactive exhibits. Entertainment Weekly looks at libraries in film throughout the years, and news librarians are thrilled that the Pulitzer-winning Washington Post is recognizing one of their researchers as part of the reason they won.

The Library Society of the World is now on Facebook. Are you on the membership roster? I'm not, because I'm a slacker, essentially, but with this society it's okay to slack.

And finally, just how attuned to internet pop culture are you? Take the test and find out. I got 207 out of a possible 260, which means I know way too much about these here internets.

I'm embarrassed to say I only got a 106. I missed some of the ones I knew... like I remember the Britney guys' name... anyway I'd do worse in a real-world quiz I'm sure.

Don't feel bad, Dawn. I only got 115, and at least a couple were lucky guesses.

I am proud to say I didn't know some of them.
