- (The Schlowdown - CDT)
Hiya! Remember me? I'm your old friend the public library. In the Centre Region you can call me Schlow. I'm known all over the country by different names, though, and when things are going well, people tend to forget about me. That's ok. I'm still here when things get tough. Just like that childhood friend that you may only have contact with through holiday and birthday cards, I'm waiting to hear from you with open arms when things seem to be going terribly wrong (like today's economy)! Drop in to visit. I don't keep track of when the last time you visited was.

What happens when a girl’s education is disrupted by war?
This Sunday, 2 p.m. at Schlow Library, we will start our Centre County Reads programming for the book Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. One of the topics in the book is how Marji’s school is affected by the changes in Iran: boys and girls are divided into separate classes, bilingual schools are outlawed, the teachers revise history depending on who is in power. Eventually her parents decide to send her away to a school in Vienna so that she can get a good education.
