Every day patrons inquire about the long line snaking towards the library's door.  Are all of those people really in line for cupcakes from the fabulous (and now, famous) Georgetown Cupcakes?  Yes, they are, and NPR blogger Linda Holmes suspects that libraries are going to be pop culture's next explosive trend. 
How can this be?  Read her article, and come hang out at the Georgetown library.  You'll be able to say that you were doing it before everyone else got in on the act.
