You know that friend who decides to celebrate her birthday for an entire week? Forcing you to run yourself ragged going to 18 different events and parties all in the name of advancing one more year? Well, imagine instead that this friend is the library. And instead of being a nuisance, it is something to be celebrated with no obligations whatsoever. Yes, what I am trying to say is that it is National Library Week 2012! Almost every day this week celebrates a different aspect of libraries and their many public services. Today happens to be National Bookmobile Day. So, go out and hug your neighborhood bookmobile!
And so, in honor of National Library Week, I would like to honor the Free Music Archive for being a shining example of the potential of (not just interactive digital libraries) but libraries and archives everywhere. Here, here! This National Library Week Mix features selections from the FMA that thematically apply to books, reading, language, literature, and information. Of course there is so much more to libraries than these things, but hey, they fit thematically.
