The name Honolulu can conjure up frenzied activity: exploring the sea with electric scooters, high-altitude extreme parasailing, close encounters with sharks, 40-miles-per-hour motorboat rides that guarantee you’ll get wet. But Honolulu can also mean…

[...] county officials have defended their actions in public meetings and media interviews, saying the practice of weeding out older, damaged, outdated or unpopular books in favor of more “popular and appealing new materials” is a common practice at libraries. County officials follow a philosophy of a “living library,” a mix of new titles and classic books, with an annual paring-down of outdated items. The issue Dorenz and like-minded supporter...

Not all libraries can be repositories. And even in those that are, weeding is inevitable. But it must be done with sense, and for the right reason: to make room for something better for all.

But the most surefire way for libraries to selfdestruct, is to let their policies be guided by their idea of what is 'popular, appealing and new'.  
The librarian's job is not to steer the library towards catering to the whims of public perception, but to steer public perception towards appreciating what the public library has to offer: a chance for communities and individuals to create and share knowledge.

This goes beyond contemporary ideas of what is 'trendy'. If your goal is to chase trends, you condemn yourself to always being one step behind and losing touch with yourself. If your goal is to make the best of what you are by doing what you do best, you will be setting the trend and the public wlll come and find you. Authenticity never goes out of style.

In New York, libraries have more users than major professional sports, performing arts, museums, gardens and zoos combined, but see only a fraction of the funding.

Sometimes good, sometimes they don't get orders right.. today, tuna sandwich ON A BAILY.. how hard is that.. walk back to work, it's on a bagel, which I don't care for.. we even talked about the bread.. did the girl not listen? did she hit the wrong button? Or, did the guy making it get the order wrong? Very disappointed in this experience.. for a $7.00 sandwich, they should get it right... DrWeb
