That cherubic member of the highly functional and harmonious previous Board, Adam Chaleff-Freudenthaler, called it:
The secretary to the dysfunctional and fractious current Board, Nancy Marshall, confirmed last night (2012.05.22 20:25) that “Mr. Dulmage resigned from the TPL Board on May 2, 2012.”
Next step: Go full-on TTC and replace everyone but the Chair. Don’t think it can’t happen. (It already did.)
I was disappointed to learn that the retirements of three helpful librarians at the city’s most beautiful branch, Beaches, took place during the strike! Well, Godspeed, ladies.
Memphis-like modular seating.
Here we have Berlin Alexanderplatz.
You have one week to plow through all of this – but three weeks to borrow a pedometer you’ll glance at a few times a day. (Nine if you renew it twice.)
Oh, but it’s all about not making terribly sensitive people wait for holds. Your point being? I borrowed this thing right off the shelf at Yorkville. I didn’t have to “wait,” but there’s no way I can finish it in a week. Nor could anyone.
The longer the library insists on its failed policy that multi-disc DVD sets must of course have the same loan period as compact discs, children’s books, and pedometers, the more intransigent it seems. Language-learning DVDs already circulate for three weeks, so this is hardly unprecedented.
TPL management isn’t going to fix this problem without an actual order. Comin’ right up.
