National Library Week
Hey! Guess What!
Its National Library Week! I'm sorry to say that I was reminded of this when I was watching Craig Ferguson last night. I knew it was coming up, but I forgot. However, the fact that the event has garnered some national attention is a good thing. The event started on Monday and will run through this week.
To get a little social networking buzz for the week the ALA is encouraging supporters to offer up twaikus based on your love of libraries to the plugged in masses. This is the first that I have heard of a twaiku. I must say that I approve of the twaiku. (A twaiku is simply a haiku submitted to Twitter.) They're offering prizes! Not bad for trying to come with something deep and philosophical and having come out like something babbled out while totally inebriated.
