Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde

We got a couple inches of snow here in Seattle since yesterday and, with the preponderance of hills and a tendency to ice up, just getting to work was a slogging chore. While the library won’t be getting many of it’s usual type of patrons today, as a “warming station” – a city-approved spot to get out of the cold – we will get many of our homeless and insecurely housed neighbors stopping in. And that’s ok with me, because that’s how we roll (as they say) here at the library.
So, for those folks, and everyone else feeling the bite of winter’s chill, stay safe, stay warm, and watch through this little window into some heat.
