Hopefully humorous yet simply sincere, this first attempt at video blogging is a response to what she did about what he created because he has been encouraging this and they all talked about it some more while we had presented this take on the whole thing.

And thanks for the momentum from all of you too!

for understanding what’s important all the while
“I have seen the future of libraries:
It is to spend the future discussing
the future of libraries.”

but knows it is time to get off our butts
and practice what we are preaching to prove this stuff!

for letting her play librarian
