Oh, what a night, late December back in '63

Maybe it's not 1963, but it's certainly retro day here at the library.

Some of the things I've found in a pile of donations:

Yes, dear internets, 4 MB of RAM is all that is needed to run this sweet program. My phone has 5 times that.

When was the last time you saw one of these?


The Music Man on FILMSTRIP. What the. . .? That's going to be so useful.

I feel my wood-paneling walls closing in around me. What? You think I'm kidding?

Notice the titles of binders. Yes, some of my checkouts are still on paper. I'm working to fix that.

Did I ever tell you that the people I replaced here were in their 80s? Yes. My library is just that awesome.

Ah, ha, ha! Reminds me of Spec. Coll!

I actually think we have more useless stuff back in the archives than anyone would ever believe :)
