Here’s your daily dose of library-oriented speed-reads to start your day!

TODAY IN THE LIBRARY…

In celebration of World Meeting of Families 2015 and Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia Falvey Memorial Library invites you to celebrate your family by sharing a family photo. There are two ways to participate. 1.) Bring in a copy of your favorite family photo and hang it on the library display window. 2.) Post your family photo on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with the hashtag #falveyfamily and we’ll hang it for you. Please note, submission of a photo implies your permission to use images on library social media accounts, displays, and publications. Provide copies and not originals as photos displayed will not be returned.

ONE OF THESE THINGS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS

Born2Add“Who’s bringing Born To Run?’ was as critical a question to outfitting a mid-70’s dorm room as was who’s bringing the area rug or mini-fridge. The required soundtrack to, well, everything back then, Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run turned 40 years old last week. As iconic as the music inside, the cover photograph of Bruce and saxophone player Clarence Clemons has been honored and parodied in dozens of other homages, including our favorite, Sesame Street’s 1983 Born to Add. BorntorunTaking you inside the design process is the fascinating volume featuring Eric Meola’s contact sheet from the Born To Run photo sessions, Born to Run, The Unseen Photos. Check out  thumbnails here or use our ILL/EZ Borrow services for this, or any book that may stir the madness in your soul.


 

QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today is the 52nd  birthday of the voice actor and animal imitator you never knew you didn’t know, Dee Bradley Baker. Undergraduates (and, of course, the older crowd that appreciates good animation) might remember his name from the credits of Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender (2005), because he was the voice behind the animal sounds of Appa the sky bison and Momo the flying lemur. See? You never know what skills of yours might be highly marketable!

“You’ve got to connect with the things that you love.” – Dee Bradley Baker

 


HAVE A GREAT DAY!

If you have ideas for inclusion in The 8:30 or to Library News in general, you’re invited to send them to joanne.quinn@villanova.edu.
