Dear Alice and Joanie B,
How does a chicken suggest a purchase for the SCCLD library? And what if you're a rooster -- ???
Wrrawwk! (cock-a-doodle-doo to you!) The SCCLD has a collection to crow about, beak-cause we collect the best -- in books, DVDs, CDs, ebooks, databases, magazines, and more... Hawwwk-ever, sometimes, something isn't in the collection -- beak-cause it's really old -- or really new -- or we haven't heard it was hatched.
FOR EXAMPLE! - Take Charlton Heston, please...SCCLD has all of his major movies, YET when we returned from our Hawaiian "vacay" o' surfin' 'n tattooin' 'n loungin' -- and we wanted to see our man, Charlton Heston, in his classic "old Hawaii" movie Diamond Head....
|Diamond Head (1963) is about old time Hawaii, back in the day when pineapple plantation owners were called "King" and an Italian (James Darren) or a Greek (George Chakiris, who also played a Puerto Rican in West Side Story) could act and be a Native Hawaiian... (see Richard "King" Howland is a swaggering bigot land baron living on the Big Island of Hawaii. He objects when his sister, Sloan Howland, announces she plans to marry Paul Kahana (James Darren), a native Hawaiian, even though Richard, the King, Howland is having a torrid affair with an Asian woman, Mai Chen.)|
. . .A simple search on the SCCLD catalog REVEALED-- baaawwk, whoa! SCCLD does not have Diamond Head, starring Charlton Heston in our collection!
Brawwwk! A slice of history and culture - how can we get it into SCCLD??!!
Quack! er - QUICK! Go to SCCL.ORG ---....
Then scroll down to the bottom of the SCCLD Home page....
YES! Now click on suggest a purchase....
....land on the Suggest a Purchase page, then scroll down:
And... fill out the form...
....and be sure to include your "request" to reserve the item when it comes in...
Whoooo Hoooo! Cock-a-doodle-doodly doooo!
Diamond Head - here we go...
Here's hopin' you will give suggest a purchase a try too!
