And I have to share a clip with you from "The Librarians", a very popular Australian comedy.

In Praise of Libraries
When I was an academic, I was a bit snobbish on the topic of libraries. The only libraries really worth looking in were the university ones. Local libraries were full of junky paperbacks and women's magazines with the recipes torn out. How wrong I was! Since I have rejoined the non-academic (real) world, I have come to love our local library. A really good range of books, a great source when I am researching something and always happy to order books in for me. Brilliant! Today I went in for a quick browse and emerged with seven books (above)!
