What does Black Friday mean to you? Traditionally, it’s the first day of the Christmas Holiday season. It also used to represent the day that a lot of retailers finally turned a profit for the year, meaning that their account books turned from “red ink” to “black”.
As a public librarian, for me it’s usually meant one of the busiest days of the year. Sounds funny, doesn’t it. People don’t shop at the library. But for students, it’s the last big weekend before end of semester, and a lot of students have big papers or projects to finish. College students are home for the weekend, and turn up at their local library to study.
Even with the internet, people still come in for help. And folks who are off work for the long weekend come in looking for good books to read. Libraries have lots of those. Patrons who want ebooks want recommendations.
The more things change, the more things remain the same.
