Friday Fun...

Go outside!!!!
Reserve your place under the stars at Recreation.gov: Find hiking, fishing, camping, climbing, biking opportunities all over the U.S. The search box lets you narrow your search by location, landmark, etc., pretty cool.
Tomorrow, June 2, is National Trails Day. Search for local events and hit the trail!

But if it rains....
An Arizona library is set to open with no classification system!!!! The sound you hear is Melvil Dewey rolling in his grave....
"To Billy on his Tenth Birthday from Aunt Ethel" ... The Book Inscriptions Project
A Study of Withdrawn Library Titles... that I kind of don't quite get
A new search engine with human-selected results.... Mahalo in alpha
