todays haul from the library

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

at my latest trip to the king library, i checked out 8 books.  i love the king library...  they have everything!of all the things that bug me about my job, there are a few huge benefits. one, we get random days off because someone died. two, we get retirement (and if i stay 30 years, it’s almost 100% of my salary). three, i get to go to macromedia’s max 2004 using california lottery money (yes, people play the lottery, and i get to reap the benefits). fourth, i get to take six credit units of classes for $12 (yes, i said $12, and that is for graduate courses).

and one of the best reasons to work at the college is the king library. this library is 8 floors of books and such. there are 3 floors of books that are san jose public library books, and 4 floors of sjsu books. then there is the basement with all the cool maps, and special books and such. i love my library. it is 2 buildings away from my building. they have a little “friends of the library” bookstore that has publisher proofs… they have current dvd’s… they have 38 pieces of art scattered around the building…

if you live in the bay area, and you haven’t been to the king library yet, it’s time for a visit. it will be well worth your time.

  1. We had a great library back home in Knoxville, TN – I miss it.

  2. My university has the largest social science library in the world, but sometimes I really wish they had a fiction section as well!

    Have fun reading Life of Pi. I read it last summer, and thought it was good.
    I’ve read Falling Angels as well, but I have to admit that it was my least favourite out of the books I’ve read by Chevalier. I would have recommended Girl with a Pearl Earring instead!

  3. oh, i see LIFE OF PI there.  i’ve been meaning to read that for a while now and haven’t gotten around to it.  you’ll have to let me/us know how it is!  and $12 for six credits? DAMN!  when i took a three credit course last spring, it was $250! and that was at a community college.
