Sad News

I read the latest issue of American Libraries Direct with great sadness:
If these kinds of cuts continue, who will provide access to information to a citizenry that needs to be more informed than ever before? Who will provide instruction to students needing assistance in navigating the sea of information available to them? Who will continue to champion access and literacy?

Call me a worry wart if you must, but this news makes my stomach hurt.

And how ironic that libraries' use is surging.

Still some fight left in Philadelphia ... it's good to see some pushback on the branch closings.
