Dirty Laundry

This just forwarded from a colleague of mine (thanks Nancy via Jeff) from a list of “student wants” in regards to their libraries. “A laundry mat inside the library so that we can do our research in between loads!” Now there’s a community building idea I hadn’t thought of before.

    This brings to mind the community building efforts in schools. There are lots of places to track these, but the Center for Public Education has esp. focused case studies.

    About a dozen years ago I read about a laundromat that was attached to a singles bar. The combination seemed to be doing pretty good business.
