A 50ish woman working on an online college degree was shocked - shocked! - to hear that public libraries don't support college-level homework. K came out and eased her way into the event. Later, K mentioned that she's told that woman scores of time she needs a college library or to use our journal database. Sigh.

Just after her, an older man wanted "biographies of world leaders" -- as DVDs. Something about the way he put it -- and the fact that he knew he needed Clinton, Kennedy, and Idi Amin -- made me think he was taking a class, too. Whether this was background info he had missed these last few decades or his actual research, I can't say. Or maybe it is just for fun, or for date night or whatever. I thought of him as I read this.
