After four years of rounding up the “bizarre and brilliant of the web” the Library blog reaches a milestone today with the publication of our 1000th posting. To celebrate this achievement we thought it might be fun to have a look back at some past TOTD favourites with a list of our ‘Top 10’ sites. So, in no particular order…

  1. Giant Lego Boulder
  2. Anamorphic Illusions
  3. Draw a Stickman
  4. Sodaplay
  5. Flurrious
  6. Wordle
  7. The Ugly Dance
  8. 21 Accents
  9. Galaxy Zoo and our very first entry in October 2007:
  10. Le Book

And in case you just had to have a new one:
