実践ビジネス英語 2020/1/31 (6)Becoming a Cybrarian
I specially like the idea of ibraries supporting young people. It would better place to be a haven for the young than a building filled with fascinating information about the world and staff eager to help you access it. One of the most important things kids can learn is that the world is a big place with many many different people in it.
Salmans also mentions the discounts and free passes that can be obtained at U.S. libraries.
I did a little reading on the various items and services that libraries in the U.S. provide and I found some fascinating things. Ah, there is a library in Philadelphia, for example, that lends out musical instruments and another that has cake pans. There were also several libraries in that city that checked out birding backpacks containing binoculars, maps and a field guide. I also read about public libraries in the state of Georgia where you check out things at ranging from tents to telescopes, sewing machines. The article said some people used the sewing machines to tailor clothes for a job interview or tried out a machine before spending the money to get their own. There was even a fashion show featuring library users who had designed clothes using the machines.No tags for this post.
