Honestly... They are a library, they should be reinforcing proper grammar and writing skills, not how to talk like a teenie bopper on AOL.

Yikes!

I like how all the prizes are nothing to do with reading and education too...

I guess they assume that kids won't be interested if the prizes are books. :)

They probably figure that kids who would want book-related prizes don't need to be lured into the library with gadgets and gibberish. I hope if they get them reading that they will absorb proper grammar from the books, which presumably don't contain the same nonsense as the webpage.

It did make me wince to see that on a library page though.

Hmmm I wonder if my teenage cousins have been looking at this site. I have to yell at them to talk english.
It pisses me off....God even the guy I'm "seeing" says words like "thats bulk awesome", "I'm so stinging for that set, hey" and he's 24!!!!!!

the guy who made that was probabley looking over his daughters shoulder while she IMed her friends. Then he said, what a great way to get more kids into the library. Honestly ppl just write like that when they want to be funny or confuse newer users. Noone does that in real life.
