NPR and the Old Spice guy address libraries


[NPR article]

I don’t know whether public libraries will be the next big pop-culture wave. I know that they’re extremely useful and that every morning I go in to work, the librarian or page who opens the door has to shout “OPENING THE DOOOOOR” so that everybody can prepare themselves for the deluge of patrons who have been lining up at the door, waiting to get in. Unlike some other librarians, I don’t think I’d mind, as long as this wave of popularity gets them more funding and respect.
