A recent post on the ETakoma blog mentioned that Yahoo Local can be used to find child care services within 5 miles of Takoma Park. If you have some sort of Yahoo account you can leave a review. Appearances to the contrary, the library is not a child care service. This will again surprise some people who have told their children to wait at the library after school today. The picture shows the current view from inside the library's front door.
The child care list looks genuinely useful, but, to our chagrin, Yahoo Local doesn't list us among the libraries. Google Local doesn't list us either. Yes, we made application to both some months ago. You can find us on AskJeeves local only if you ask for Takoma Park City Library (which is not our name) and the listing will have the wrong phone number. Consequently, we do not think highly of the quality or completeness of search engine "local" features.Posted by library at May 6, 2005 02:54 PM
