Public Libraries

I've always been fond of public libraries, they can be a great resource and it's so... non-web (2.0 or 1.0). I've used 'em for youth sports coaching materials, current non-fiction, jazz CDs and such. They can also be real funny; sometimes they have contemporary titles but other times there's no hope in getting what you want without going out to the bookstore to buy it. I did a search for a title, "What Would Buddha Do at Work" on Contra Costa Library catalog and the first hit was for What would Buffy do? : the vampire slayer as spiritual guide. Buh!
