Schloss Blutenburg is a castle outside Munich, Germany. I spent a month living in Munich the summer of 2009 for a Library Science study abroad. Every weekday we would ride 2 buses and walk to get here . It was the 14th century hunting lodge of the Duke of Bavaria. The oldest part is an 8th century chapel. It was the coolest place ever to work ! From the coble stone court yard, to the 3 foot thick walls, and the arrow sight windows. It is representative of the really old buildings all over Europe. Believe it or not after a month of touring around and working in this place I got very tired of 'old buildings' . I think the weight of the history of civilization was over whelming.

At the NC School Library Media Conference yesterday we got to experience Melville Dewey.
He created this rap and video as a class project in library school.
He now has a cd and does shows all over. He is awesome!
