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.
