Good support for striking library workers
We only got a day’s email notice of the “Read In” at the Toronto Reference Library, but the weather was good and a lot of people turned up. I saw a few TV cameras and a couple of councillors, too. Gail, a librarian from our local branch, seemed uncertain that the strike could end soon, and she didn’t look happy about that.
Bebe, whom I do not know, had a nifty handmade sign so I asked for a photo for my blog. She said she has a blog, too. I had to ask her to repeat the URL a couple of times. No idea what it means, but it’s memorable.
I took John Robert Colombo’s book A Quaint and Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore to the read-in, just in case I could plug it on the news. No such luck, John.
