As some of you may have noticed, we've officially launched
our library discussion forum
On the forum, we can all share our thoughts about issues related
to the library. The rest of the website is pretty one-way: we
put it up, and you read it. The forum is different in that it
allows you to answer. All you need to sign onto the forum and share
your thoughts is the number printed on the back of your library card
(under the barcode).
