Card catalogs, those sturdy cabinets of drawers full of mysteriously coded 3x5 inch cards that once stood in every library, offered a delightful serendipity of finding unexpected listings or of making surprising connections. In many ways, such catalogs were just like the internet, yet with the added benefit of tactile, olfactory, and kinesthetic elements have been sacrificed to the mouse-click. It is to fill this gap that more than eighty-five artists, poets, writers, musicians, librarians, and creative thinkers are participating in the Alternet, a collaborative exhibit currently at the Greenburgh Library. Learn more about the exhibit on the Alternet Facebook page (www.facebook.com/TheAlternet).
The exhibit is viewable on the second floor during library open hours until September 15, 2013:
