  1. I just wanted to you let you all know that I love how you do this - take a hot topic in the news and show what is available on the topic in the library. I have just been so impressed with your and the Arts division's blogs, and it just makes me so happy to see DCPL making these user-centered changes (I've been using DCPL so long, that I still have one of those old red library cards and I've definitely noticed things changing for the better in the last year or so). Keep up the good work!

  2. wow! thanks a lot! if you're liking this, then hopefully you'll be excited for the new dcpl website and catalog...coming soon!
