I rarely post items not found on the internet. Today is the exception. Matt and I attended the NYPL class I mentioned yesterday—Handmade Then and Now by Jessica Pigza. It was excellent! I learned basics of the NYPL system – how to search for exactly what I need. I can’t wait to spend a day on the third floor looking through non circulating books. The books (poorly) photographed above are relics Jessica shared with the class. These were just things lying around her desk. How lucky to be a librarian!
