Instagram Public Photos with #askalibrarian

Back to business as usual at the library today! we started a seed library at my branch recently, and today we got a ton of packets of flower seeds from another branch to restock (it's been really popular already)! this is my boss's desk as she was sorting through all the different types of seeds. we've got a wide variety, as you can see! i can't wait to see how our patrons do with their seeds!

The @nypl released a series of photos that document questions from patrons to librarians in the days before we had the power of the internet in the palms of our hands. among the questions on a variety of things, here is my favorite:
.
“what is the therapeutic value of essence of pine needles?” 1/21/47
.
as a history teacher and a lover of oils, this really fills me up with joy ๐Ÿ’š
.
well, anonymous patron of 1947, i hope someone told you how amazing pine oil is! i hope you learned that it’s amazing for feeling grounded (all conifers are! there’s definitely some symbolism there, feeling grounded from plants with roots... ๐Ÿค”). i hope you discovered how to support a healthy respiratory system with pine oil, and that it’s great for sore muscles, too.

Shout out to our awesome partner @djspencerlee for this #bookfacefriday photo. did you know you can read current and back issue of the @nytimes at your @anchoragelibrary? you can also search tons of newspapers online including the @anchoragedailynews , @seattletimes and 5 spanish language papers using america’s news. this database has articles from 1982 to today! great for research or to stay up on hot topics.
