Casinos and libraries

Cesspools of germs that they are, how would they ever be able to return to normal operation? Library materials are notorious petri dishes of bugaboos. And casinos... fuhgettabotit; you may as well lick a bus station toilet seat.

Imagine how much money casinos are losing over a 3 mo. period.

If the slot machines are 6 feet apart, at least the old ladies won't be able to play 3 at a time anymore.

Libraries are okay, if you avoid everything but the books. No one is anywhere near them.

I stopped using libraries a long time ago because the books can carry bedbugs.

Libraries are the thing I've missed the most. I've re-read All my books (and there's a Lot of them). I know, I know, download books on my Kindle. I do sometimes, but what I miss is the feel and smell of a real book. Also, I work in a casino, so I don't miss that scene at all.

R3 has just officially put me off libraries more than COVID.

Libraries are the worst, somewhere between a bus station and ER waiting room. It's where people go when they're sick and off work. Bums lounge around waiting for the shelters to open back up. Everyone hacking and sneezing in a small space. People taking paper towel baths in the restroom...

I always used to wipe down keyboards and keypads while I was there anyway.

Now? I can't imagine them being able to keep the branches and materials clean enough anymore. It may become all curbside drop-off/delivery.

Books and borrowed materials are the least of a library’s problems. Quarantine them for a few days after they’re returned and any traces of virus will have died. Obviously this doesn’t include browsing and handling at will; you’d have to have some kind of reservation-only system.

Computer terminals and other public points are a separate problem. I don’t see how you could open those up at all.

I miss casinos

r3 the books don't have bedbugs. The people who allowed libraries to be used as homeless shelters, drop ins & consumption sites brought them in, and they migrated to the books. If your library doesn't have that problem, it won't have bedbugs.

Some Indian casinos in California are already open, and Vegas is planning to open shortly.

Once the library reopens, my plan is to quarantine anything I borrow for several days before I start reading.

Casinos have their online gaming sites.

Some libraries (academic and public) will probably focus on e-collections as a "germ free" alternative to print collections and keep buildings closed until a vaccine is available. In areas with very few COVID deaths, they may reopen and leave returned materials to sit for a couple of days after they are wiped down, then circulate them again; and have 6 feet apart seating, and fewer people in the building for programs and computer use.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
