If it's Thursday, that means it's a hectic day at the library. Gah!

Gale is launching a contest to discover librarian superheroes. I would like to borrow a superhero for a day or so.

Inspiring news from Egypt: the youth are protecting Alexandria's library from would-be looters.

The Special Libraries Association meets in Philadelphia this summer, and a member just pointed out the Rosenbach Museum & Library, which looks like it's definitely worth a visit.

A new book reimagines the relationship between Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne, and mentions the day they climbed Monument Mountain as one of inspiration. (I've climbed Monument Mountain, too! That's really all I wanted to say here.)

Did you go to the University of Awesome? I think I did, actually -- it looked pretty much like that!

Tomorrow: links from others. Thanks, all.
