Are you going to talk like a pirate today?

Today, September 19th, is Talk Like A Pirate Day. You can spend the day talking like a pirate, or you can come to the library and find out about real pirates (I suppose there is no reason why you can't do both...).

Ron Crow Uses His Library

In an article titled, "Local Library's Resources Can Be Better Than The Internet", Ron Crow talks about his conversation with his local librarian.
