Tough Economic Times; In Praise of Public Libraries

I’ve been trying, for awhile now, to spread the good word about the value of public libraries (admittedly a big part of this is because I have long been working for libraries myself).  As such I am very fond of this article from the Huffington Post that talks some of the value of public libraries during tough economic times.  I am very proud of the fact that the Harris Poll found that 75% of Americans have library cards, which is a 10% increase from two years ago.  Use your library, they are great places that offer all sorts of valuable resources beyond just checking out books.

  1. Also see this video from NBC. Support your public library system as it supports your local community.
