Just Dandy

Something COOL is coming to the library.

Can I use that word? Sounds a bit old fashioned. I think I used that word when I was in high school, and that was a long time ago.  Pardon me while I digress and look up synonyms.

The Thesaurus. Reference.com site suggests boss, dandy, divine, glorious, hunky-dory, keen, marvelous, neat, nifty, sensational, swell. None of those sound cool to me. Synonym.com did not have ANY appropriate alternatives. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary said “excellent” and “very good” were two alternative ways to say COOL.  (…and to digress further Merriam-Webster’s, interestingly, has been in the news this week as being banned from some school classes which is definitely not cool.)

Now , what’s COOl at the library?  Texting.  Text a librarian is coming soon. Look for a widget on the library home page and more information soon with instructions.  We are looking forward to your questions, your book requests, your suggestions for new ways to say COOL.

    Just to clarify – probably no widget on the library home page, but there will eventually be a chat widget in our Catalog and probably a few other spots, plus Text a Librarian instructions. Texting will be really great – it’s a simple 5 digit code, the first time you text us you have to enter dppl, after the first time it will recognize you and you can just type your question. It’s coming really soon so watch for it and try it out, please.
