This week's Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from the new Peninsula Paris in France. Grant Rosenberg, programs manager for the American Library in Paris, explains that the French language is not just the language of love and why the American Library in Paris is a cultural center of the city—it houses the largest collection of English books on the entire continent.

Ways to support
What will the libraries of the future look like? Will we even need them? In a world of streaming media, instant messages, wikis and blogs, Google and search engines, has library science become as irrelevant as Gutenberg? Virginia Stanley, Director of Library Marketing at HarperCollins interviews author Marilyn Johnson who will discuss her latest publication, THIS BOOK IS OVERDUE!: HOW LIBRARIANS AND CYBRARIANS CAN SAVE US ALL. Tracing the history of librarians from Dewey to digital, Johnson explores the next wave--what the cybrarians call “Library 2.0”--and how this new paradigm will affect the archiving of our culture. Joining in this conversation will be Nora Rawlinson, founder of EarlyWord.com
The Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel has been a regular supporter of various community projects and fund raisers over the years. From music projects to books, from helping Pagan websites pay for their hosting to raising money to help a Pagan in need. Many of these fund raising projects have been great successes. In this episode KaliSara and RevKess will visit with Ivo Dominguez Jr about the success of the New Alexandrian Library Project and its on-going funding needs.
The New Alexandrian Library is a project to create a home for Neo-Pagan (etc) artiacts, books, pieces of art and more. A place to preserve these items ffor posterity. NAL is continuing to raise funds to build more onto the library. From the IndieGoGo page for their current funding project:
We already have several important collections of books in storage including the entire library from the Theosophical Society of Washington, DC. Judy Harrow, of blessed memory, just left us her library as well.
We have started collecting newsletters, event program books, old recordings, and more that is a history that will soon be lost if not preserved.
We already have important art and artifacts including paintings of the Four Archangels by Dion Fortune.
This library will be open to all and will engage in inter-library loan with similar projects elsewhere. Some rare special collections will not circulate.
NAL is just one of many worthy community support projects that currently in action or are on-going. As time allows, RevKess and KaliSara will discuss some of the others.

Tonya and Denise will have a special guest to share all the wonderful resources and services available at your local neighborhood public library. In addition to talking about the book clubs, reading lists, tutorial services, the hosts and their guest will also share their favorite finds. The visit is like a kid in a candy store for parents of children who love books, or for those of you who are trying to convince kids to like books! Either way, the public library is a great parenting resource.
This month we'll talk with Professors Penny Hazelton and Mike Chiorazzi about law librarianship as a career and about law library education. NOTE to new listeners: For this episode, I used a new microphone set up and it picked up lots of paper shuffling - and it's annoying. We've identified the problem and future shows will be much cleaner and easier to listen to. This one is worth it, despite the distractions. I apologize for the sound.... RL
