Libraries are a good thing to support, I think. I am of the opinion that they may serve to decrease the level of ignorance in the world rather than increase it. We’re probably all set, ignorance-wise. I bet we could afford to go the other way for a while, see how that works. I do wish they had provided an explanation for the melting shoes, though.
IT’S ME AGAIN: Hodgman Actual.
Thank you for re-tumbling this Paul, and everyone. EVEN YOU, NEIL GAIMAN.
To answer your question, I found this answer on the YouTube page:
“Thank you, everybody! You’re all helping a lot! To answer: Our heat source is a grate in the middle of the library’s floor. It gets so hot that the soles of our shoes melt if we stand on it for more than 10 seconds. (It’s directly in front of the check-out desk.) It’s also obviously a hazard for storyhour, with kids crawling around!”
AND SPEAKING OF TINY LIBRARIES,
Here is the Robertson Memorial Library in Leyden, MA.
It is a good place and a place for good. You can give it money, too.
(Please note: they have a new copy machine!)
UNTIL WE START a separate tumblr for tiny libraries, I say THANK YOU EVERYONE.
This is Hodgman Actual signing off.
That is all.
