Your Librarian Web Loggers let you down last week. We failed to post about…
1. … Professor Robert Vitz (above left, with the always dapper Director Emeritus Thomas Huenefeld), who gave a talk in the Reading Room about At The Center, his new history of the Mercantile Library. He was great.
2. … the fact that At The Center is available for purchase, either via the Mercantile’s online store or at the Library itself, for the outrageously low price of $30.
3. … the fact that you did in fact read that correctly- only $30!
4. … the Books by the Banks festival, which took place on Saturday at the Duke Energy Convention Center. A good time was had by all, as they used to say on the society page of my hometown newspaper.
Anyway, sorry about the spotty coverage. We won’t let it happen again.
Hey, don’t roll your eyes. We mean it this time.
