At the Library

By Linda Witthoft, Washington Public Library | Jan 07, 2013

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Well, I do, but I’m in over my head.

As I look at all of these new devices, I think, does all leisure time need to be spent media based? There are Nooks, Kindles, i-Pods and i-Pads, smart phones and tablets. You can have your very own Android, netbook or notebook. How about a Nintendo D.S. for the small ones? Where does it stop? For that matter, begin? Can it be the speed of technology is faster than the speed of time getting away from me? Is being constantly “attached” to a device the best place to be? I’m thinking, for the sake of public safety, I should stay out of the cyber-world. I guess, for me, there’s no place like home — and I do not mean a home-page!

Please feel free to unplug, disconnect, or power-down and join me at the library for some book, magazine or CD ideas.
