I have been digging into family history lately, and found a whole branch which lived in the heart of Manhattan during the early nineteenth century, then moved to Brooklyn a few decades later. So I’m studying New York City history a lot, and found this article about a “secret” subway entrance under Times Square to be all sorts of fascinating.

The American Ballet Theatre is donating its archives to the Library of Congress. Huzzah!

A new Pew Report indicates that, when it comes to libraries and the internet, the kids really are all right. 

The Knight News Challenge asks about inspiration for the future of libraries. Any ideas?

Good news: The FBI is digitizing its files! Bad news: The FBI is then destroying the printed files. Eeep.
