Library Romance

My old friend, Madeleine Lefebvre, head of the library at St. Mary's U in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and current past president of the Canadian Library Association (CLA may not recover from having Madeleine, and then Stephen, as presidents) has started a book project now that she has all that free time away from CLA duties. (That's a joke, Madeleine)
Welcome to LibraryRomance.com, where you can share your true stories about falling in love in a library setting. We are researching stories for a forthcoming book called The Romance of Libraries, and we'd love to hear your story.

We want to hear about both happy and sad romances, requited and unrequited. All submissions used will receive a complimentary copy of the book, to be published in 2005. Pseudonyms will be used to spare your and your loved one's blushes!

The author, a librarian, noticed how many people had met their partners in libraries, or had romantic encounters in libraries or related settings (for example, library school).

She heard a story of a couple who met in a library when studying at the same table. After they married, they bought the table from the library and now use it as their dining table. Stories are coming to light from all over, and now it's your turn!

So, all you library lovers--enter your stories! I have one...um, maybe two, well, maybe three myself...look, I've worked in libraryland a long time, OK?

You forgot to mention that Madeleine is also an excellent actress. She and Jim McPeak, another old friend of mine, starred in the docudrama, "Can This Marriage Be Saved?," at the 2002 ALA Midwinter meeting. Unfortunately, streaming video does not seem to be available of this Emmy-quality program, which seems amazing when you consider that the complete first season of "Land of the Lost" has been released on DVD.

And George modestly did not note that he provided some of the best lines for that little play--that, as far as I know, exists only as a video. All those light bulb jokes, gone for ever. I can't even remember now what the punchline was for "How many OCLC Vice-Presidents does it take to change a lightbulb?" I do remember Gary Houk, the OCLC VP who got to deliver that line was *sure* the audience wouldn't find the joke funny...and of course, they did. And the third blogger here, Alice, was involved too. She got to play the neglected daughter of the unhappy couple. So, dear readers, you might infer from this that George, Alice and I have a track record here at the OCLC Mother Ship of trying to make important--but serious--issues more fun.

Library aficionados are blocked by a negative organizational culture that pervades our Boston Public Library and other cities' public libraries. Library users/customers/consumers should be able to learn of the individual expertise of cities' public libraries staff, specialties, special interests and experience with the respective cities' public libraries collections. Faculty of colleges indicate their expertise. So should our cities' public librarians. It would benefit professionals for making their expertise more well known would give them a better negotiating position for remuneration and benefits and for a more secure position or tracking a better career move. Encourage our cities' public librarian to put up their weblogs!

What was that story a couple of years ago about the kid who lived in the library basement for a semester? It's not quite a romance...
