Blast off into the Space Age! Plot your orbit to include the Minneapolis Public Library!

Special Collections continues to digitize a collection of reel tapes that date from the 1970s. These tapes were generated by, what was then, the Minneapolis Public Library. Most of the reels are recordings that were included in the library’s regular weekly program, Bookends.

This particular reel contains spot ads that were intended for broadcast on local Minneapolis radio station, KBEM. The voice you hear is that of station instructor, Warren Christy. Stay tuned for more sound clip highlights from the archive.

More Bookends promos!  I think this is the last of them.  Maybe time for more clips???

The underside of a “weeping” fungus cap.
Some tree-dwelling fungi secrete a liquid when they are growing, a process known by botanists as guttation, ridding themselves of excess liquid through their pores. Photographed by Harvey Roberts
