Week 5 Jan 29th - 4th Feb In the early years of the 17th century many famous collegiate and town libraries were founded throughout the country. At the turn of the 18th century, libraries were becoming increasingly public and were more frequently lending libraries. The 18th century saw the switch from closed parochial libraries to lending libraries. Before this time, public libraries were parochial in nature and libraries frequently chained their books to desks. At the turn of the century, there were virtually no public libraries in the sense in which we now understand the term i.e. libraries provided from public funds and freely accessible to all. Only one important library in Great Britain, namely Chetham's Library in Manchester, was fully and freely accessible to the public. Chetham’s Library is the oldest free public reference library in the United Kingdom. Chetham's Hospital, which contains both the library and Chetham's School of Music, was established in 1653 under the will of Humphrey Chetham (1580–1653), for the education of "the sons of honest, industrious and painful parents", and a library for the use of scholars. The library has been in continuous use since 1653. It operates as an independent charity, open to readers and visitors free of charge. The library holds more than 100,000 volumes of printed books, of which 60,000 were published before 1851. They include collections of 16th- and 17th-century printed works, periodicals and journals, local history sources, broadsides and ephemera. Chetham's was the meeting place of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels when Marx visited Manchester. The economics books Marx was reading at the time can be seen on a shelf in the library, as can the window seat where Marx and Engels would meet. So, how did libraries get started here in Australia? Library services in Australia developed along very different paths in the different States, as such it is hard to define the origins of the Public Library system in Australia. In 1809 the Reverend Samuel Marsden advertised in England for donations to help found a 'Lending Library for the general benefit of the inhabitants of New South Wales'. The library would cover 'Divinity and Morals, History, Voyages and Travels, Agriculture in all its branches, Mineralogy and Practical Mechanics'. No Public Library came to fruition from this although some of the books brought to the colony after this call survives in the library of Moore Theological College. In 1856, the Victorian colonial government opened the Melbourne Public Library (now the State Library of Victoria). This was however purely a reference library. In September 1869, the New South Wales government opened as the Free Public Library, Sydney (now the State Library of New South Wales) by purchasing a bankrupt subscription library. In 1896, the Brisbane Public Library was established. The Library's collection purchased by the Queensland Government, from the private collection of Mr Justice Harding. In 1932, the Carnegie Corporation of New York funded a survey (The Munn-Pitt Report) into Australian libraries. It found 'wretched little institutes' which were 'cemeteries of old and forgotten books'. There was also criticism of the limited public access, poor staff training, unsatisfactory collections, lack of non-fiction, absence of catalogues and poor levels of service for children. Lending libraries in Sydney (NSW) and Prahran (Victoria) were praised as examples of services, which were doing well, but these were seen as exceptions. In NSW, The Free Library Movement was set up on the back of the Munn-Pitt Report. This collection of (amongst others) concerned citizens, progress associations, Returned Servicemen and trade Unions advocated a system of Public Libraries to serve the needs of all people. This movement was stalled by the declaration of war in 1939. The passing of Library Acts in the states at the end of the war marked the beginning of modern public libraries in Australia. In 1943, the Queensland Parliament passed the Libraries Act, establishing the Library Board of Queensland to manage the operations of the Public Library of Queensland, and coordinate and improve library facilities throughout the State of Queensland. In November 1943, at the official opening of the new Public Library of New South Wales building, William McKell, the New South Wales Premier, announced that the Library Act would be fully proclaimed from 1 January 1944. Even after the war, the development of free lending libraries in Australia had been agonisingly slow: it was not until the 1960s that local governments began to establish public libraries in suburban areas. (Above was taken in places from Wikipedia) The 1932 survey made me shudder. You see our school’s library currently sums up the review in that paragraph above. Not for long. Just like the concerned citizens mentioned above, there are a team of concerned parents and caregivers along with the caring staff of th
07: Psychic Visit pt. 1
During my stay in Los Angeles Anthony, Erika, and I decided we would each go see a psychic. We wanted the answers to our deepest quandaries of love and work and paying $20-40 for that seemed about right. In LA, there's a clairvoyant in every second strip mall and third residential block, so to sort the wheat from the chaff, we turned to the internet, more specifically, Yelp. As a team we agreed that we should begin our search where the legitimate psychics were sure to be found: Hollywood. After a minute or two on a laptop, several promising candidates surfaced (though surprisingly few had reviews – are Yelp users embarrassed to expose their mystic inclinations? Is there an inversely proportional relationship between those that rant to the spirits and those that rant on the Internet?). The forerunner, by sheer number of typos was "Hollywood Psychic Gallery". The description reads as follows: "psychic Marla Natural Born And very Accurate[y Gifted Clairvoyant Psychic. Studdyed at the Universal Temple of Light Northridgf ca ,The American Astrology Ass. Certifed masters degree in psychic divations" It should be noted that we agreed to see a different psychic and Maria's establishment seemed like a fine place to start. (After all, she studdyed in Northridgf and at the The American Astrology Ass.) We programmed the address into Antony's gps and were off. The car is filled with chatter. Who's scared? Who's excited? I'm not scared! What are you going to ask? What will you tell them? Nothing! They should know all about me already. They're psychic! We exit the highway and follow the gps through the local, endearingly disheveled Hollywood streets. Erika points out a familiar building from the back seat. "We saw that place online! That's the place voted #1!" [Ed. note: it's self-given title in Yelp is "#1 Los Angeles Voted Psychic Reader & Love Specialist Angela"] Sure enough, a few houses of down the block is red and white Psychic sign from a photograph we saw on the internet. Anthony makes a strong, abrubt turn, we circle around the block and park. Erika having had the "vision" of spotting this place, it was obvious that this should be her psychic. We enter the gate of the home, ascend the stoop to an astroturfed porch and are greeted by woman wearing a nightgown and holding a baby. There's some shuffling. A man on the phone appears and takes the kid with one hand. Our physic and nonchalantly asks, "Which of you will be having a reading?" Erika is brave and steps up. Much to our dismay, Anthony and I are not allowed to sit in. I suppose the implied privacy of mystic divinations should be obvious, but I would have liked the option to watch. I would have even paid. Instead, Anthony and I are swept into a sparse, darkly lit front room. Almost everything is white, from the walls to the lamps, to the carpet. Plastic covered furniture bounces the light from a 52" flatscreen television. We've learned it's exact dimensions in the subsequent small talk with the psychic's husband. We also learned that he's owned the house for 17 years, doesn't ask his wife for psychic advice, and that he's had a drink with Nicholas Cage. "He bought us a round, we bought him a round. Really nice guy. Crazy though." The oddest thing about the fellow is a the number of phone calls he got in the 15-20 minutes we were trying to overhear Erika's reading. The Making-of Ghost Rider special blearing on TV was hard enough to hear over, but this man's phone would ring every two minutes. As soon as he hung up his cordless phone, his cell phone would ring from across the house. When his cell phone conversation was over, his house phone would ring again. It was enough to make you think that the man was calling himself. Erika emerged before we find out exactly how movie magic made it appear that Nicholas Cage jumped over 6 helicopters in a motorcycle. She looks stunned. We say our thank yous and goodbyes and walk towards the car dying to hear what the psychic told her. Erika wasn't at liberty to share all of the psychic's mystic wisdom with us in the car, but, suffice to say, the seer focused on her past romances and was "spot on." The psychic also helpfully offered to unblock Erika's love life for $200. Erika passed on this though on hearing that fasting for nine days and burning a white candle ought to do the trick. Back on the road. Up next was Anthony...
