Library Blog

The Howard County Library has a new blog. One of the DVD documentary items they have blogged about, The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill, I highly recommend (not too coincidental, but the name of the library's blog is "Highly Recommended"). My cat even liked watching that DVD.

This is pretty cool idea, but being the private sector hack that I am, I will point out that Amazon.com is light years ahead of the library with respect to recommendations and even allowing consumers to leave feedback. As a matter of fact, I almost always use Amazon to get recommendations before I check out anything at the library.

And for goodness sakes, why does the library have only one Milton Friedman book? That's immoral.

My name is Fritzi Newton and I blogged about the Wild Parrots DVD. Thanks for mentioning Highly Recommended on Free Market and I'm glad you enjoyed my selection! It looks as if you are active in Howard County and the political arena. Given that, I'm going to suggest another documentary you might enjoy - Street Fight. We own it at all of our branches and it is currently on the shelf everywhere except Miller.
