In praise of libraries

Today I started a new contract at the City of Toronto. They need some business architecture and strategy work done about Information Management. Public sector IM is my specialty; my first job was in a municipal library (I typed and filed paper catalog cards into the Title, Author and Subject drawers.)

So on my lunch break, I popped into the Urban Affairs Library at Metro Hall. Ironically this was the last day the branch was open. I found an interesting book about public administration, but unfortunately it was a non-circulating item. At least the fantastic Urban Affairs collection will still be available at the Toronto Reference Library.

Torontonians are not the only people who love their libraries.   A series of mysterious paper sculptures have been showing up in Scottish libraries. I like making altered books too.
