Hey All:
FACT OF THE DAY: LIBRARY

The word library derives from the Latin liber 'book.' In ancient times, there was no differance between a record room or archive and a library. The earliest known library was a collection of clay tablets in Babylonia in the 21st century B.C. The extensively catalogued library of Assurbaninpal (c 7th century B.C.) In Nineveh was the most noted before that at Alexandria (3rd century B.C.). The first public library was established in 330 B.C. in Greece for the preservation of the work of the great dramatists.

Hats off Rapaire and to all other librarieans.
Have a great day
