hit me back if you’re interested.

I love the line here, “it’s a library and not a bar.” If only he knew how many hook ups and hit ons take place on a given day. I hope she sees your ad!

  1. I love it! Another great example of the zillion different ways public usage of the computers in libraries is changing lives šŸ˜‰ And not just the hook ups and hit ons that happen face to face, but the users meeting people and communicating online, too. We should tout this stuff in library marketing!
