Introducing the book-A.k.a. Medieval Helpdesk

Have you ever gone to a card store and found yourself laughing out loud after reading several dozen cards? Well I'm never sure if the card makes me laugh or just the silly mood I get in after reading so many one after another. This video made me laugh out loud- was it the laugh track, watching so many in a row or is it really just that funny? In any case, hope you enjoy!

This video makes fun of moderns newbie computer users by illustrating - in a way fully understandable to them - how silly some of their questions are by creating a similar problem in the Middle Ages.

It's from a show called Øystein & Meg (Øystein & I) produced by the Norwegian Broadcasting television channel (NRK) in 2001. The spoken language is Norwegian. It's written by Knut Nærum and performed by Øystein Bache and Rune Gokstad.

Bay County Library... singing their way onto YouTube

I heard from Jeannie Weller Cooper, Bay County Public Library, Panama City FL about the videos her library is putting together. What's so neat about this particular correspondence is that she contacted me through my MySpace account... I love the connectivity of web! They have quite a few posted but this one really caught my heart- great team effort and I love the live performance of the staff!

Come See What's WOW! NOW! @ Your Library

This is delightful! Need a break from life's cacophony?

The McCracken County Public Library's Quiet Reading Room is the perfect peaceful retreat.

Canadian humor promotes what librarians do best

Nancy Goebel,Head Librarian/Human Rights Advisor pointed me to the 10-minute and 30-minute versions of an InfoLit DVD she made last year. "While we do not have these 2 version of the video up on the web yet we do have a trailer for them."

The trailer is fun - take a look.
