I stopped by the neighborhood branch of our local public library today and look what I found!
Perhaps I wouldn't have been quite as surprised to see such a big section of knitting books on display a couple of years ago, but I was delighted to see them still getting this kind of attention. It was a pretty nice selection too. Maybe not the hottest things off the presses, but a good solid display.
Before I took the pictures, I decided to ask the librarian if it was OK. It would have been easy to get a couple of "stealth shots", but I figured they wouldn't mind and then I could pat myself on the back for doing the right thing.
Well, you would have thought I'd asked them if I could burn the books rather than take a picture! I had to find the branch manager, explain exactly what I was using them for, get her approval of the pictures once they were taken and promise not to use the name of our fair city in the description. Crazy.
