So this week, I’m almost famous in Abilene, Texas. I wrote a story that was featured on the ilovelibraries.org website well over a month ago. Since it was e-published, it’s been reprinted in hard-copy form in eight states, either in newspapers or library newsletters. This week, the Abilene Public Library is printing it in it’s section of the local newspaper. I guess I struck a chord, discussing how libraries can help people get through economic downturn. I thought I was just talking about inexpensive or free stuff that libraries do, instead I’m getting emails thanking me for concisely summarizing library offerings.
I like librarians…we’re a good lot. And we sure are trying.
