The Paradox of Choice -
Psychologist Barry Schwartz takes aim at a central tenet of western societies: freedom of choice. In Schwartz’s estimation, choice has made us not freer but more paralyzed, not happier but more dissatisfied.
"This library was built in 1932 in the small town of Roscoe, South Dakota, by a group of community-spirited women called the Priscilla Embroidery Club. The land for the library was donated, and the women hauled the rocks for the chimney and foundation while their husbands constructed the building. The eight women of the club took turns being the librarian and maintaining the yard and building. Books were bought by the clubwomen, but many books were donated by people in the community. Approximately fifteen hundred books were in the library when it closed in 2002. The aging members of the Priscilla Club were no longer able to maintain and operate the library. This twelve-by-fourteen-foot building was known for being one of the smallest public libraries in the nation."
