'As a woman who writes often of the garden outside, perhaps it is time to pay more attention to the garden inside. To compost the machine-like ideas of productivity and worthiness and to tend my own internal garden with the same care I tend my words and stories, my 鈥榦utput鈥. To transform my computer-brain into a garden-brain.'

fascists in the library 

Bad librarian times today - patron asked for help finding Mein Kampf. Pretty sure it was for personal interest and not research too. Not pleased with how I handled it ("go check the catalogue"). I hate this library debate about collections and "neutrality" - just put it in the fucking bin! Any thoughts about this GLAM folks?

oh Antony, you had me at 'boutique escargot farm'

"鈥楩uck this library鈥 became a kind of catch cry among certain members of staff. It means fuck this library 鈥 fuck this library and the council that governs it, their violent management practices and possessive logics. But, also, fuck this library because we love it. Fuck this library because we believe in a better one."

"When kids were still allowed in ASPL many of them would say 鈥榝uck this library鈥 in response to various requests from staff: be quiet, no running, final warning. Sometimes they鈥檇 say 鈥榝uck this library鈥 while being escorted out by a security guard or ranger. Yet they would, more or less, all show up the next day..."
