In today's strip, Connie asks Elly what she'll be doing at the library. When Elly explains that she's organizing puppet shows and the like, Connie asks her if people have stopped reading or something.

(Strip Number 540, Original Publication Date, 24 January 1984)

Panel 1: As they change into their street clothes, Connie asks Elly exactly what it is she'll be doing at the library.

Panel 2: Elly explains that she'll be organizing puppet shows, children's films and workshops.

Panel 3: Her comment about how she'll also be lending videocassettes and organizing live theatre astonishes Connie.

Panel 4: She then asks Elly "Doesn't anyone read any more?"

Summary: We can probably expect a chirpy little Lynnsight that asks just that. We can also expect Lynn to not want to deal with people who complain that in the original, "any more" was spelled correctly.
