Chris Cornell has died, Roger Ailes has died, a special counsel’s been appointed to investigate the president, and it’s barely 9 a.m. in this “anything can happen at any time” universe we’re in at the moment.
So, with that in mind, why not spend a few minutes helping the Library of Congress solve some mysteries? They have a whole series of “identify this person” photos, as mentioned earlier, and the latest installment is out (and there are still a lot of unidentified people from previous posts).
There’s a new Instagram account, LibrarianLooks, dedicated to showing what we librarians look like.
A drag queen reads to kids in Brooklyn! This sounds like so much fun. Three cheers for the Brooklyn Public Library.
Not library-related at all, just kind of fun: There’s a livecam at the famous Abbey Road crossing, so you can watch people try to imitate the Beatles in real time. (When I last looked, there were some tourists taking photos, plus other people just trying to catch the bus.)
