The Library often has events I’d love to attend, but other life things (having children) make it a stretch. Steven Pinker was here last Tuesday, for example, and there was lots of excitement. A young couple asked me earlier that day if they would get seats by getting here an hour before he started speaking. I said I thought they would.
If you have cable through Mediacom, then you can watch events like this on Channel 20, The Library Channel.
What’s neat is that a lot of ICPL’s videorecordings are available to watch any time at http://video.icpl.org/. As with the catalog, you are able to browse by subject or search by keyword. If there is a recording that you know the Library has but you’re not seeing on the site, then you can request it be added by writing us here: email@example.com.
