...una biblioteca es un gabinete mágico en el cual hay muchos espíritus hechizados. Despiertan cuando los llamamos; mientras no abrimos un libro, ese libro, literalmente, es un volumen, es una cosa entre las cosas.      - Emerson

1. Modern problems

The server where SOL lives has been up and down this week; you might have had trouble accessing the site.  The server is receiving medical attention and should be back to normal soon.


 2. Isn't all money dirty?

Our friend Library Willie is looking for grant money to help launch an ESL program.  Seems to me this is a good chance for us to share what we know about how to find funds.  If you know of good websites or other sources, let us know and we'll spread the word:

Subject: Quick and dirty grant money to pay ESL instructor

Hi Bruce,

This is librarywillie looking for quick and dirty grant money to fund an ESL instructor at Val Verde County Library in Del Rio TX.  We were fortunate enough to receive a set of Inglés sin Barreras videotapes and workbooks from the Alamo Area Library System.  We would like to be able to offer classes, but have no discretionary funds to pay an instructor what he/she would be worth.  I'm hoping SOL may have some leads?
