“Jason and Molly both love books and libraries. So Jason decided the library was the perfect place to pop the question… after he wrote a story about how they met, had it illustrated and bound into a book, and then placed on the shelves in the Thomas Hughes Children’s Library. He and Molly “found” the book on Saturday and we are happy to report she said YES! Congratulations to you both – we wish you a long, happy, and book-filled life together!” | Chicago Public Library Facebook page
I WAS WAITING FOR ONE OF YOU LIBRARIANS TO POST THIS (I knew it would pop up on my dash eventually!)
I’ve known these two basically my whole life— molly is one of my childhood bestie’s sisters, and jason and I went to college together. They met at MY 25th BIRTHDAY PARTY! (I get mitzvah points for that shidduch, for all my jewish friends out there).
Anyway, they are awesome and delightful and basically famous now :)
Good job Sarah Beth.
Library Scented Candle
A cozy blend of wood and earthy tones make it easy to imagine yourself curled up with a book or peering through shelves of wonderment in the Oxford Library! This is a completely original scent- I’ve mixed a variety of natural fragrance oils to create it. I have been making candles for years for myself, and decided to list them on etsy.
Oxford Library is made up of several fragrances: Oakmoss & Amber, Sandalwood and hints of tobacco and leather. This is perhaps a “fresher scent,” whereas my other library scent: Dumbledore’s Office, has a woodier aroma. A customer described Oxford Library as smelling like a “Freshly showered Sherlock Holmes.”

BiblioTech - San Antonio’s Completely Bookless Public Library
The new book-free library, called “BiblioTech,” is intended to open in the fall and is part of a an entire bookless public library system planned for the entire county of Bexar.
And it’s not “bring your own device” either. The library will actually lend out e-readers (of an unspecified brand) for two weeks at a time. There will also be computers and the like, but no books, and presumably no card catalog either.
