NEW YORK (Aug. 14) – A huge power blackout hit U.S. cities spreading from New York to Cleveland and Detroit and north into Canada Thursday afternoon. In New York City, the blackout had a significant effect on the public library. None of the Internet terminals or other computers in the New York Library system were functioning, but the novels and non-fiction books somehow remained operational, according to patrons on the scene. Older reference librarians were able to switch to print sources in order to maintain services, preventing any disruption. Seekers of pornography crowded the reference desks asking for help and were referred to a list of bawdy novels and assorted men’s magazines.

One thought on “dark enough for you?”

  1. Very funny. Actually, we closed the library at about 4:30 and had a hard time getting some patrons to leave. We’re closed today too. Even when the power was out, I could use the battery on my laptop and dial in to the Internet!
