Dear librarian friends,

This a blog post I wrote inspired by the generosity of many of you as we
build the new Josephy Library in Joseph. Thank you all for support and
stimulation. For the profession you have chosen--or that chose you--and for
your individual generosity.

And please come and see us. The Wallowas are grand, and we are very proud
of this new library addition. Links below to the blog--which i have been
writing for a couple of years, and to the web site for the new Josephy
Center for Arts and Culture, our new home.

thanks again,
rich wandschneider

On libraries and generosity

On Friday I picked up two boxes from the Post Office for the Josephy
Library—bookends sent me by a Portland law firm library that is remodeling
and no longer needs them. The bookends were advertised on a listserv
sponsored by the Oregon State Library—I now get regular notices of
meetings, grants, and questions and answers about libraries and
librarianship.  And occasionally something like this—notice of 70 metal
bookends (worth $300-$400) for donation to another library in need. When I
replied, librarian Julie said she’d pack them up and send immediately—and
consider the shipping costs a donation.

be well
