Portland Library, early twentieth century.

Sometimes, it is easy to take libraries for granted. Yet, as the economy plummets, it never ceases to amaze me how such an vital resource keeps flourishing here in Portland. The public library is such a simple concept. Yet in the context of our times and political climate, it is also quite a radical service. I mention this because, I just received an email from someone who had found Foulweather #1 on the shelves of one of Multnomah County's libraries.
Looks as though, three copies are out on loan as we speak! Cheers to the Librarians!
I'm hoping I can get Foulweather #2 in there also.
