Plaza Voices: Cricket, anyone?

Last spring, walking in a park near my house, I saw something I'd never seen before: people playing cricket. It got me thinking about this sport that I suddenly realized I knew nothing about, and had only seen in English costume dramas.

TV and Comics--A Great Combination

Flash

You've probably noticed that many new and returning television series have their roots in the comic book world.

A Tour of the (Possibly Haunted) Children's Library Basement

in
Basement Door

Have you ever come to the library looking for a book only to find that it's in the "Historical Collection" or the basement? Before I worked at the library I was looking for holiday books at a branch and this very thing happened; I waited while a friendly librarian went into the storage area to retrieve them for me. I was intrigued. What could this storage area possibly look like?

Now that I work at the library I visit the basement or "Lowers" many times every day. I thought I'd take the opportunity to share a little information and a few pictures of this behind the scenes area.
