Libraries and Social Responsibility: A National Conversation - more pre-reading

We hope that you are finding a few moments to read these posts. The pre readings are intended to get us thinking beyond the conventional. To start challenging assumptions and to create a foundation upon which we can start talking about the broader social context within which libraries exist. It is our hope that these ideas will give you a way to start thinking about our big question for June 2nd ?

How can libraries support community progress and contribute to society’s ability to thrive?

“When information is brushed up against information, the results are startling and effective.”

Marshall McLuhan

See you in 9 days.

Firstly, you must exercise; without proper workout, you can bid goodbye to your dream of having a flat
tummy. I spent hundreds of dollars trying to find that "quick fix" or magic solution that
would have allowed me to drop the desired pounds and have
the perfect body. The problem is that many do not follow through with their
fitness plans and thus fail within the first 3 months of starting a
new fitness plan or routine.

Люди, прошу помочь кто чем сможет. Нужно собирать деньги на свадьбу но обстоятельства сложились так что необходимо выплатить порядка 5000 $, не считая затрат на проведение самой свадьбы. Хотел продать авто, но оно взято в кредит (выплачивать еще 3 года). Пробовал договориться сдавать квартиру, но так как живу в ней не я один не получается. С работами беда: с будущей женой работаем в поликлинике – зарплата выходит порядка 390 $ на двоих (а летом хоть зубы на полку) ну плюс дополнительно подработка 200$. Найти лучше работу не получается, так как работаем в разные смены, а в остальное время сидим с бабушкой инвалидом (одну дома оставлять вообще нельзя), у которой со всеми пенсиями получается 120$.И вот на 710$, живем в троем , да еще и кредит отдаем по 190$ каждый месяц. И занять денег не у кого. Вот осталось два варианта или мне одному найти работу не меньше чем за 1000$, а девушке с бабушкой сидеть или хоть побирайся. Работу найти пытался уже несколько месяцев, но по знакомству ничего подходящего нет, а так или дурят или не берут. Если кто может отправить через сбербанк сколько не жалко, да хоть 10 рублей, буду очень благодарен. Реквизиты: г.

Между прочим, история ее появления была очень интересной и очень оригинальной. Так, в конце 20 века двое известных разработчиков приступили к разработкам. И мало кто знал тогда, что буквально через пару лет игра станет столь известной по всей Земле. Правда, у одного из разработчиков, имеющего прозвище «Гусятник», уже был аналогичный опыт – известная стрелялка «Quake 2». В марте того же года игра получила свое название, а первая тестовая версия вышла уже летом. Тогда все пользователи ринулись ее попробовать, и интерес к игрушке не пропал до сегодняшнего дня. А все потому, что игроки, которые так ее любят, получили все, что нам говорили авторы.
