The world we knew and valued is disappearing. I knew this to be happening in so many ways, but libraries were such an important part of my world growing up. The idea that no knowledge would be lost, no matter how seemingly trivial or out-of-date or wrong-headed, was crucial. I could go to the New York Public Library and read documents from the 1790s, without having to worry that some librarian in 1910 had decided "no one will ever read this stuff" and had deaccessioned it. What will the historians of tomorrow have to work with? Don't tell me "Google."

The USCD Central Library (the Geisel Library as it now is) is a place of many memories for me. It's where my doctoral dissertation was prepared. To see it gutted really hurts.

Introduction
I'm a freelance editor and writer of creative nonfiction. After checking out of grad school many years ago, I've taken a winding path through different careers, from Gopher developer to writer of colorful and effective eviction notices. Through it all, I've retained a sense of humor and a belief in the need to be humane even in difficult circumstances.
