    When we order a new item for the collections it can sometimes feel just like receiving a present when it comes in the mail!  I filmed a quick video as we opened our newest acquisition - a puzzling map from the Milton Bradley Company from the 1880s.  Enjoy!

    Note - if you are scared of editing video, I filmed clips on my iPad, uploaded directly to YouTube, and used their built in tools. I combined the clips, uploaded the final still image and the logo image at the end, and set it all to public domain music, available through YouTube. It was intuitive and you can learn too.

    Looks like there’s a state missing!

  6. Last week, I asked LJ Tumblr readers to answer a short survey. Here’s the first set of data from those question! Check out where Tumblarians are reading LJ across the globe and the country over at Google Maps. (Be warned, there were so many responses that locations are split up over two pages.)

I hope all you library-visiting New Yorkers enjoy my big dumb face leering at you from every bulletin board available.
They made me a A FLYER and I LOVE IT.

And this immediately made it onto my calendar.
