…cruel and unusual punishment!

In order to avoid any future threats of cruel and unusual punishment (only kidding) from Alice and the gang at the Berlin library for my consistently overdue books, I’ve promised to publish this list of stuff (many items of interest for any of us).    OK, here it is –  the 2010 Berlin Library Spring Program guide.  For further info – phone 410-641-0650.   (You may also find a current list under the top tab entitled “Library Events”)
