Downton Abbey & Law Made Fun

Appearing last night on WXXI-TV's Talking Abbey Live, Brighton Town Justice Karen Morris provided engaging and thoughtful commentary from a legal point of view on the popular PBS series Downton Abbey, which appears to enjoy quite a following in the legal community. As the show wrapped up its fourth season, Judge Morris, author of Law Made Fun through Harry Potter's Adventures, suggests there may be a Law Made Fun through Downton Abbey coming our way. We look forward to it.

From vellum to digital archives

We were pleased to get a visit yesterday from a group of students from the World of Inquiry School who had chosen the subject of law to investigate during their "Intensive Week." Pictured below is a discussion on data preservation and storage media. Staff was vividly reminded of the rapid changes in this area when the teacher accompanying the group was unfamiliar with a 5 1/4-inch floppy!

If your group would like to schedule a tour of the library, please call the Reference Desk at 585-530-3251.

What's Going On in Downtown Rochester?

There is a wonderful balloon exhibit on display in the Sibley Building of Jack and the Beanstalk by Balloon Manor. The exhibit has every color of the rainbow and more. Every detail can be seen from a roaring fireplace to butterflies all a flutter. If you are looking for FREE family fun this exhibit is a must see.

You better hurry!  Today, the exhibit is scheduled to come down, and a large-scale popping party will ensure it is done in the most fun way possible.  

The popping party starts tonight at 5 P.M.
