We’re giving away another book over at the Steampunk Librarian! This one is all about Doc Holliday and Billy the Kid. Also Edison. And shamans. And more.

Did you know that the Occupy Wall Street movement has its own library right on site? It’s true, and if you’re a librarian, you can help out if you’re so inclined.

Meanwhile, in California, Governor Brown signed a bill restricting the privatization of libraries. This is a simmering topic in the library world and it might heat up significantly.

This week’s “what will the world be like without libraries?” story comes from the UK. (I don’t mean that to sound cynical; stories like this abound in the news these days, unfortunately.)

In peppier news, why not peruse the Dictionary of the Absurd? Or virtually visit the Potato Museum?

And finally, it’s World Series season! The New York Times has a really nifty article about the history of the programs handed out at the Fall Classic.
