Article about library resources of a different kind

Christina Hall of the Free Press wrote a pretty nice article about librarians. At first I was a little bit like, "huh?" I didn't get why library's would check out stuff that didn't really count as information, things like tools, artwork, etc. After a few minutes I realized that each still counted as a tool - a tool towards a little extra appreciation of art or toward redoing one's floors. And if libraries can lend how-to manuals, cookbooks, travel guides and the like or guide their patrons to trust worthy websites or online databases, we may as well provide the tools fit for a library's community, as those mentioned in Ms. Hall's article. Always good to hear about libraries getting creative!
