The 2010 Bulwer-Lytton awards came out while I was away, I think. Better late than never!

The results of the 2010 Law Librarian Survey are now out as well. We are doing more with less, as per usual, really. Sooner or later, our "less" is going to become "next to nothing," as it has for public libraries, which is worrying a lot of people (for good reason).

Looking on the bright side, however, at least we're not in the post-apocalyptic world of Tomes and Talismans, a public broadcasting show from the 1980s which attempted to educate kids on library use. (Also available for purchase!)

If you know a quirky library, send it in to Library Juice; they're compiling a list. (Incidentally, the Reanimation Library is having a book sale this weekend.)

And finally, something for the historians: King Arthur's round table may have been an amphitheatre seating about a thousand people. Er?

Tomorrow: links from others!
