Help Me With a Library Name by Tonight!
« on: May 04, 2012, 02:58:25 pm »
So the principal, at 345pm on Friday informs me that she wants me to think of a new name in English for the library by today. I gave my co-teacher this blank look for a minute and suggested to name it after a person who helped establish the district, city or country or after somebody who donated to the school. But they want some fancy name that represents a place where students get lost in their thoughts while reading and learning. I need a good name since this will be painted on the wall and sit there for years to come!

Any suggestions?

Just a name or a quote?

Will it be "the _______ library"?

Or, will it just be something like "Knowledge is power".
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

We are not "guests" in Korea. Korea didn't invite us over for Pimms in the garden. We are paid employees.

How about "The Jaysoon17 Memorial Library"? (you can put your real name instead)

The Crucible of Learning
The Great Library
The Reading Room
The Knowledge-o-Tron
The Repository of Man's Wisdom
Look Inside!
Bibliothèque

Go nuts with it. I got saddled with naming two E-Zones. One ended up being "B.E.S.T." (Bansong, English Students Town) and the other was "Think And Grow E-Zone". After the book Think And Grow Rich Both cheesy as hell but they went down a treat. No one is going to care or judge whatever you come up with.

I came up with, "Reading Sanctuary and Garden: Where Your Imagination and Creativity Blossoms." and handed it over with a red face only for them to say that they already decided to give it a Korean name.

Who would have expected that.

(Yes, it's not a surprise, but my sympathies anyway).

 since koreans seem to be obsessed with words like "palace" "castle" "...ium" ,
I would suggest

the "book palace" "book castle" "bookium" "bookopolis"

hmm..
nevermind
