I picked up Oscar Peterson plays the Cole Porter Songbook at the library today. The self-checkout computers were down and the staff member who checked me out complimented my selection and recommended another jazz musician (see below) she heard about on NPR/NYT. The world briefly and suddenly felt smaller and more comfortable again — it wasn’t just an Amazon or Pandora recommendation.
It is not as if I walk in to the library thinking, “Thank goodness for the interchangeable automatons that fulfill my media requests via KCLS.org“, but that’s what technology allows us to do in practice. I like the speed and efficiency self-checkout allows, and there are times when I can’t afford to indulge even the most well-intentioned chit-chat. However, today it was a welcome change of pace and I’m grateful for the staff at the KCLS Kingsgate branch.
