Here’s an uplifting article for our librarian colleagues from today’s New York Times: Libraries Are Meeting the Needs of Their Communities With More Than Books - The New York Times (nytimes.com). “It’s easy to romanticize libraries. But, the fact is, they’re not ‘just’ about the written word. Were they ever? As local safety nets shriveled, the library roof magically expanded from umbrella to tarp to circus tent to airplane hangar. The modern library keeps its citizens warm, safe, healthy, entertained, educated, hydrated and, above all, connected.”
