Noisy thoughts from the librarian's desk
Monday, December 19, 2005
The U.S. has nearly 40,000 self-storage facilities according to Tom Vanderbilt in his article Self-Storage Nation posted Monday July 18, 2005 on Slate.com. http://www.slate.com/id/2122832/ Imagine all those things we can't seem to live with but can't get rid of either. Are all Americans pack rats? What does that say about us as a nation? Do we hoard things that would help those in need? What if we all went into our storage units and gave some of our things to charity? We wouldn't miss what we weren't using and someone else might actually be able to use those things. Something to think about as the holidays approach.
