Library Factfiles:
I've always been impressed by the work Michael Jesse and staff do in creating local reference resources on the Indianapolis Star's Web site. Here's their latest, on The Indianapolis 500. Great job! (This Factfile was featured in LII's New page this week.)

Good news for Thomas Wolfe (and Asheville) fans: the Thomas Wolfe house, the boarding house his mother ran, once called Old Kentucky Home but immortalized as "Dixieland" in "Look Homeward, Angel", has been restored four years after a devastating fire. The Asheville Citizen Times has a fine feature on the reopening, including videos, a timeline, more. The Memorial's Web site.
