May I Have A Cookie, Please?
Hello WorldCat Users! My name is Jasmine and I’m working on our Social Networking Initiatives at OCLC (yes, it’s a very cool job).
I found this video the other day that was just so great that I have to share it here:
It’s a Sesame Street classic – Cookie Monster in search of (what else?) cookies, and an earnest librarian trying desperately to explain that libraries only provide books. Oh, my dear Cookie Monster! If you could only see what you can find in a library today!
While most of us still can’t help but think of books when we think of libraries, the breadth of content available now is truly amazing: music, movies, toys, artwork, podcasts, MP3 players, video games and much more. (Explore WorldCat.org and see what interesting non-book items you can find.) And some libraries even have drive-thru windows and cafes these days (so even Cookie Monster could have gotten his fix). What innovative services does your library offer? What would you like to see? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I seem to have a sudden craving for cookies myself.
