Dean Martin, puppets, bloodletting and witchcraft

What do Dean Martin, puppets, bloodletting and witchcraft all have in common? Well, each of these three subjects has its own special collection at a university library somewhere in the United States. For those of you who don't know what a "special collection" in a library is: it's just a collection on said subject; which is constantly collecting old, rare and useful books on that topic. Sometimes these collections will also have a librarian assigned specifically to that subject too.  For more on weird special collections, click here.

New York City's Battery Park Library branch has gone green. Interested in seeing the library which is is "expected to receive LEED Gold certification from the U. S. Green Building Council"?--click here. I am going to try and visit this library branch when I am in New York City this coming week!
