i wish i had some kind of cool artsy april fool's joke to play on you today, but i'm too tired to care. i guess it's better not to care than to, say, call my sister in key largo to tell her our dog got hit by a car, when she immediately burst in tears and i realized it was a horribly unfunny april fool's joke... umm.. yeah that really happened. i'm sorry, i was young and naive! and stupid.
i was curious how the library system works, and i found this explanation on the site, which is pretty fascinating:
After the books are checked out, the system emails or sends a text message to the artist of the book letting them know that someone is currently viewing their work. This is my absolute favorite part of the system, as it really puts a human face on everything and keeps the artists connected with their books."
