Jan 13th 2009 6:33PM When I was in London I listened to a guy playing the guitar during rush hour on the Tube. I don't know if it was because I was 17 and wandering through a foreign country but I thought it was the most beautiful music I'd ever heard. I like to think that he's doing well somewhere.

Feb 23rd 2008 7:35PM I think people forget that the role the public library plays in the average person's life is changing at a faster rate. Not every home has internet access let alone a computer. Having video games in the library is much more about getting kids in the door and getting them into a "safe place" rather than being "on the streets" or home alone, especially in our two working parent society. I think now more than ever libraries are finding their niche as community centers rather than just places that allow people to borrow books and this is evidence of that new role. While my library does have video game nights, it doesn't loan games. And doesn't spend money on the nights; we borrowed two systems from a neighboring library. We had more kids come to this program than any of our regular game nights and picked up a couple more "regulars." I would much rather have my taxpayer money go to that than maintaining our town's mini golf course or pool, neither of which get used year round like our library.
