  • Me: Mom, where is one of my cats? I want to nap with my cat!
  • *yells for cats*
  • Mom: I don't know, running around somewhere....
  • Me: darn, looks like I'll have to get another one. All mine are missing...
  • Mom: *laughs* is that why you have three cats? You can't find one so you get another.
  • Wow, wow, wow.
  • Moonie is not just mine. She's a family cat, even though I claimed her as a child.
  • And yes, that's exactly why I have multiple cats...

Here’s Why We Need to Protect Public Libraries

We live in a “diverse and often fractious country,” writes Robert Dawson, but there are some things that unite us—among them, our love of libraries. “A locally governed and tax-supported system that dispenses knowledge and information for everyone throughout the country at no cost to its patrons is an astonishing thing,” the photographer writes in the introduction to his book, The Public Library: A Photographic Essay. “It is a shared commons of our ambitions, our dreams, our memories, our culture, and ourselves.”

But what do these places look like? Over the course of 18 years, Dawson found out. Inspired by “the long history of photographic survey projects,” he traveled thousands of miles and photographed hundreds of public libraries in nearly all 50 states.

Architecturally, they represent a range of styles, from the grand main branch of the New York Public Library to the humble trailer that serves as a library in Death Valley National Park, the hottest place on Earth. “Because they’re all locally funded, libraries reflect the communities they’re in,” Dawson said in an interview. “The diversity reflects who we are as a people.”

My wallet came in the mail today!

Would have been too good to be true if it had cash in it.

And now Justin from MD just sent me a message,

"and you want to travel with him,
and you want to travel blind
and you think maybe you’ll trust him
For he’s touched your perfect body with his mind.”
