About meNews update on Reed Coats:
Hello to all who are interested in my father's library: I hate to break the news like this, but unfortunately after living with AIDS for many years, Reed had a bout of illness in January and passed away on February 27, 2007. His library was dispersed among family, friends and to an organization that will hopefully benefit from it. I cannot bear to get rid of his library online just yet, so I thought I should at least change his 'profile' and inform folks who have had contact with him in the past.

Reed's old profile:
Just retired after nearly 40 years as a librarian in various capacities, most recently as a public library administrator.
Like most folks here, have loved reading since I was wee and have an obsession with books, as the various bookcases in my home attest. Finding this site is a blessing for, try as I might, they haven't been kept in the best order (my apologies to the profession).
Looking forward to playing around here! ...... In fact, I'm having a great time discovering old favorites, books I now want to read, and books I totally forgot I had. This is great!
About my libraryPublic libraries ROCK!
Have also worked in jails and prisons, with young adults, and with Talking Books through LC.
Always came back to . . . public libraries!
