The American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation's Let's Talk Trains travels to the University of Missouri-Saint Louis to visit the John W. Barriger III National Railroad Library. Established in 1984 as a special collection of the St. Louis Mercantile Library, the John W. Barriger III National Railroad Library stands today as one of North America’s largest and finest railroad history collections. Named after the noted twentieth century railroad executive, John W. Barriger, III (1899-1976), whose collection forms its heart, the Library has grown to become a major resource for the history of railroad business and technology as well as for the study of railroading’s multidimensional influence on the American economy, society and culture. Join us as we tour one the world's greatest transportation libraries.

A recent study reported that most adults feel lucky to have one friend that they can count on, but rarely more than that. Wow! We live in a society that has thousands of Facebook friends, social circles and more. The study asked the participants to differentiate true friends from acquaintances, friendly co-workers and online “friends” and that is where some of the major distinctions began to emerge.
This month our Stir Things Up segment takes a look at friends versus frenemies; potential friends who may also be rivals or even enemies in disguise. How many close friends can you count? Are you lucky enough to have more than one and beat the average? I hope so!
My special guest this month is Dr. Ruth L. Miller, an eclectic scholar with multiple degrees in the sciences, social sciences, and the ministry. She is also the editor of The Library of Hidden Knowledge book series, a modern reinterpretation of the best spiritual thought, philosophy and esoteric writing from the 19th and 20th centuries – original works that are either out of print, difficult to find, forgotten, or missing from bookstores and public libraries.
The series invites us to discover the original inspiration behind the most progressive spiritual teachers and leaders of that time, easily connecting the past with the present and bringing new life and understanding to the content.
Check out the books in the series (I own them all) and join me for an in-depth and lively discussion with Dr. Ruth Miller.

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

Taking the time to say hello and introduce ourselves.
This past Friday my cousin Edwin Temple and I spent sometime conducting genealogy research on the Temple, Vining, Harrell and Richardson Family. On the second floor at the Amite Branch Library you will find a genealogy library and archival room. We spent most of our time looking in old books and looking at photographs.
A couple of years back, a former school teacher named Mrs. Grace Walker Perry donated a photograph album of African American pioneers, educators and other programs can be found in the album.
Please join host Antoinette Harrell and her special Edwin Temple for this upcoming discussion on African American Genealogy Research in Amite, Louisiana.
