    Growing up I loved books. Mostly because my dad bought half the library of an old school at an auction which we stored in our basement. It’s just a matter of finding the right books. And if children are attracted to the library because of a video game tournament, and two thirds of them leave with a book checked out, it’s just a matter of the two activities feeding each other. Not something to be sad about.

    The first thing that drew me and other youth to the library in Norfolk was the fact that it had the only public computers around and they let you play Oregon Trail on it. This is a matter of the library system striving to remain relevant and interesting to kids, and drawing them into reading as a matter of enjoyment rather than cramming literature into their heads in 7-hour schooldays.

    Those are some good books! When will they turn The Communist Manifesto into “Commie Commie Revolution!”

    Great comic!
