When should not ask questions?

I mean, what days will you not be able to answer?

I take weekends off to read, meditate, and have fun with the Walls and other friends and family. Also, all BC staff holidays. Sometimes a question takes more serious thinking – or research – so the answer might be delayed a day or so. But ask any time!

Hi Wall, just checking up on you.

How are you doing boo? Are you doing anything fabulous for the summer? Oh by the way, thank you for the music selection. I do love me some Etta James. Talk to you soon๐Ÿ˜˜!

Oh, you know me, kind of a homebody, and I’ve got other walls and some floors and ceilings kind of depending on me to stay put. Which reminds me of another Etta James song, the one that started her career in 1955: Wallflower. bit.ly/etta-wallflower

We create our own Answer Wall!

It’s technically not an answer wall, but it’s a place where people bear witness others’ experiences, find validation and solidarity. https://www.instagram.com/p/CCtcANljAqC/ Check it out!

That’s so awesome. Any space where people can go and feel heard is a great thing. If I might suggest one tweak, it would be to make clear in your bio that you’re not an official BC service. This will help protect you from having to field questions about making appointments or for directions around campus, and it will help others in need of more urgent and intensive intervention find those resources more clearly.

Pink is my color, can you change othersโ€™ posts to other colors?

Donโ€™t take away my color! If you can change all the recent posts to different colors – weโ€™d love some diversities here! Btw, we will need more diversity on BC campus next semester now that many international students cannot come back. ๐Ÿ™

Hmm. You seem to have different rules for yourself and others. I think I’ll leave the ones that are up now alone, but point taken for the future. (But I will I know you’re you?) Totally agree that BC could use more diversity (almost every place could), but very happy the administration has dropped its policy on international students. https://bit.ly/bc-ice

What if you fall in love with a wall?

No, I did not fall in love with the wall, Iโ€™m just curious.

I have fallen hard for walls in my past, though I currently have a not-so-secret crush on the lobby door. A long term, sustainable human/wall relationship sounds problematic to me. While walls can be very solid and supportive, after a while I could see you crying to your BFF, “It’s like talking to a wall….”

Hey wall! Whatโ€™s the best post-it youโ€™ve ever received?

What are your librariansโ€™ favorite thing ab being a librarian and their most memorable event?

Such a hard question! I have many favorites. Among them: all the ones that say “I love you,” drawings, posts in which people were honest and vulnerable, and lately I’ve been thinking about an excerpt from a Chinese poem: bit.ly/bc-prior-dynasty. But I love all questions! That’s why I’m the Answer Wall. Librarians are the same: they love finding answers.

Awwwwwww!๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ Hey Wall, will the library be open next semester?

That’s the tentative plan. My cousin the Magic 8 Ball says “Signs point to yes”, but the course of the pandemic is quite uncertain. We’ll need to be flexible. I do so look forward to seeing you all again in the lobby. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—
