Murals, Pie, and Ice Cream – Library Curmudgeons Through History

icecream and pumkin pie oh my

A friend is posting all sorts of gorgeous pictures of the Boston Public Library on Instagram. So for this installment of Library Curmudgeons in History, that’s where we’ll go!

Even with ice cream, people are  unhappy about the library. In this case the reception for John Singer Sargent and Edwin Abbey was simply planned by the wrong people. (oh dear)

Ad then to hear that pie and ice cream might grace the halls of the library? No. That simply would not do, much like the arrival of a library cafe simply will not do for some now.

No it’s best that libraries simply cave to scandal wherever it may happen, or you might end up with people, gasp, using the library!
