“We couldn’t have picked a better location based on our theme,” said Anne Ewell-Lee, the ALA’s Lead Global Integration Response Facilitator. “We’re planning the direction for 21st-century libraries, not gambling with their future,” she added as she jammed a fist-full of quarters into the Wild Deuce Galaxy Jackpot slot machine in the lobby of Harrah’s.
“One significant change the public will see almost immediately,” said Ewell-Lee, “is a higher level of luxury libraries. And,” she added, “branding,” alluding to the talks between Donald Trump and the Library of Congress.
ALA sources claim that the Trump-LoC talks will conclude in a matter of days, once they hammer out an agreement on the TRUMP sign for the front of the building. “It must be tasteful,” insisted The Donald. (Click the image above to enlarge.)
The ALA is also finalizing plans for this year’s Cow Appreciation Day, celebrated annually on July 15th and co-sponsored by the ALA and the Emmett Lee Dickinson Museum (above the coin-op Laundromat on Dickinson Boulevard in historic Washerst, Pennsylvania). The yearly celebration includes cow rides for “children of all ages” at local libraries across the United States. Many cities and towns include additional pomp and pageantry with a Parade of the Librarians.
