public library as new pick up joint?

I don't know how I feel about this....but it seems public libraries are venturing out into the world of speed dating.  
My first reaction is, "No Way!"....but maybe this is a new way to bring in young blood?
The jury's still out on this one.
Very interesting article in the NYTimes.....

  1. Oh my god...this is hilarious. Well, why not. My first reaction was kind of like your KJ...and at the UofR, it's not hard to believe that the library would be a place for kids to 'meet'. But this univ. is a little unique because the library is THE focal point and center of the campus (much more so that the student union). But you know, I've put in a lot of hours at public libraries and I have to say that seems like a major stretch...unless you set something up...like this article suggest.

    So so interesting...major LCM :)
