Festivals, Fairs, and Carnivals
Since nearly three years have passed since I wrote about this I thought festivals, fairs, and carnivals might be worth considering. What do they have to do with libraries, you ask? Actually, they're more in line with religious considerations. And now the term "carnival" has acquired a grouping of blog posts such as the Biblical Studies Carnival HomePage which presents posts focusing only on academic blogs on Biblical Studies. The History of Fairs focuses on the religious origins of fairs. Sometimes, you just have to get out of the library and go to a fair or festival or carnival.
