See some photos of the new Collaborative Zone (i.e., makerspace/creative space) attached to the Tanglin Trust School Secondary Library.... Very nice....  I want some of the tables the can go high/low - as well as the power towers.

A few photos of the ISB (Int'l School of Bangkok) libraries which we toured as a pre-conference to #LKSW2015 last week.  Mischele Jamgochian and Nat Whitman were very gracious.  Mischele's library (which I last visited in 2009) is an example of what a good architect can add to a renovation project.  Here is a link to a Flickr set of photos I took in the same secondary library in 2007:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/thelibrarianedge/sets/72157600046180111/

Back in Maine for Xmas, I visited the now-empty site of the 1825 farmhouse in East Parsonsfield that got re-cycled this autumn, thanks to Dave Holdredge of Mainely Barns....  Full photo set is here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/thelibrarianedge/sets/72157644778406163/

Well, older people sometimes do that -- sell their house in a reverse mortgage situation.  They get paid a monthly income (the equivalent of a mortgage payment - not involving a bank) and have life tenancy, knowing they will never have to leave their home while someone else (the new owner) is paying the taxes and doing the major repairs.  Ruby and George had no children -- and my family just wanted to secure the property as it was adjoining other property.

A few photos from the two libraries at NIST (New Int'l School of Thailand) -- a pre-conference tour of #LKSW2015 in Bangkok last week.  Stephanie Wallis, the head of libraries, showed us her brand-new secondary library.  I hope the revolving walls/shelves of her teaching space come across in the photos.  She gets a major star for that innovation.  And once she gets whiteboard glass on the backsides, it will be even more useful.

Looking at LibraryBox (US $150) - which is an open source, digital file distributing, wifi-powered library - but with no content.  We would have to add it.  Thinking of our "global concerns" projects.... in neighboring countries with less reliable internet.  A way to help them deliver digital content to students/community.
