Thanks, Bob Greene!

Here’s a great editorial piece from Bob Greene, featured today on

Hurry – go enjoy it before the usual clique of librarians starts complaining that it pigeonholes libraries as places that “only have books”.  Let’s appreciate some love from the media that doesn’t simply have to do with Banned Book Week.

I love that he talks about the struggles that libraries are facing but doesn’t write us off as victims…he focuses on libraries in a way that most in the profession have cast aside in favor of “woe is us”…he highlights libraries as treasure troves.

And the references to mystery novels from the 50s?  Yessss!

Love. it.
