The Book Thief

The dog really did eat the homework.

My mom kept a book that my dog had destroyed as an example to show students when they learned about checking books out from the school library.

Mixed Feelings »

asthedaysgobylifehappenss:

The main library at Rutgers has always been open to the public. And because of that (and the area that Rutgers resides), there’s always been a pretty big homeless population who hang out in the library (specifically the Reference Room). Most of them are ok, all they do is come in and read or talk…

The way that academic libraries deal with homeless folks is: often messed up. I’m curious, are there places that approach these policies in an especially welcoming way?
